[amsat-bb] FO-29 Digitalker Recording

The FO-29 digitalker has not been active in many years. What you are
hearing is an Echolink or IRLP transmission from the ground. I'll have to
try to copy down the numbers to identify it. It sounds like someone was
linking nodes together.

Unfortunately, it's far too common for people to setup Echolink nodes or
personal crossband repeaters in the amateur satellite subband and to hear
that through FO-29.

What frequency were you hearing it at?
