[amsat-bb] FoxTelem Tips

Using Funcube+ on the FoxTelem program. Saw spike during Fox-1 transmission, moved the cursor by hand to the carrier spike. The eye and the window next to it sprang to life, but never decoded anything. 
If I disable the audio filter and unsquelch the program, key up my HT into a dummy load on 145.98 it sounds like a steady buzz even when I'm talking. Shouldn't I be able to hear myself over the telemetry program?
I thought there was one moment I could hear the girl saying Fox one on the telemetry program, should I be able to hear her audio?

Great question Michael.  Don't know.  Find Signal is experimental.  Try it and report back.

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.
