[amsat-bb] AO-85 9k6 data

9k6 data is not used very much on AO-85 since it is not required for any of the experiments, and its
use turns off the repeater.  It is turned on, rarely and briefly, for testing or other purposes.
There is usually an announcement on Twitter, Facebook and/or here in advance, though not always if
they are doing a quick look.  The Auto mode will pick it up, assuming everything else is working
correctly at your station.  It has been reported that the signal threshold to copy 9k6 is somewhat
higher than for DUV.

Expect to see much more when Fox-1Cliff and Fox-1D fly.

<I'm getting the hang of grabbing the AO-85 DUV data stream, but still
<haven't caught any 9k6 data.
<Can I get a quick refresher on when the 9k6 data is transmitted, please?
<I assume that FoxTelem set to "Auto" mode will pick it up when it
<happens, but please correct me on that if I'm wrong there also.
<Pointing me towards on informational url would be fine, but personal
<messages are lovely.
