I had a 30deg pass just now an using an arrow and Funcube dongle. I could see the spike on the telemetry program. On my handheld with a rubber duck I could hear the girl say Fox-1 every couple of minutes, but the program would not move its tracking line to the carrier. The last one that came across I moved it with the mouse and it then locked in and I just caught the ending audio come over the speaker. 
I haven't deleted the extra dat files, so I didn't have it in find mode. 
Should it be?

If you are attempting to decode Fox-1A in IQ mode with Find Signal enabled,
then it will also search for signals from Fox-1Cliff and Fox-1D.  But that
is a waste of time at the moment :)

You can fix that by removing the files from the spacecraft directory.  You
only need to move the files that end in .dat.  In fact, renaming the ending
is sufficient.  Leave the file for Fox-1A of course.
