I'm continuing to experiment by myself on this subject of receiving
telemetry data using an SDR dongle and software. I've appreciated all the
bits of information offered by the stations who are already up and running.

One thing I'm finding with software packet reception is that the software
"modem" or software "TNC" (i.e.: soundmodem) seems to expect packets with a
good checksum. Just a single bit-flip and I don't have data.

My approach at the moment is toward improving my downlink and then I'll see
how many more packets I'll find useful.
