[amsat-bb] Listening to Funcube with RTL-SDR

I posted an inexpensive way to listen and decode the Funcube telemetry
with the cheap RTL-SDR dongle.  This can apply to almost any satellite
too. What makes this setup unique is the ability for SDR-Radio (v2) to
listen to Wide Upper Side Band and the Funcube dongle to Autotune.
Between the two you don't need to worry about doppler correction for
telemetry decode.

I also have the I/Q file and the audio of the transponder pass from
last night on there. I hope you find it useful. It has has been great
fun for me!
