I see that you have already gotten some great replies, but it also sounds 
like you might be searching for orientation on satellite telemetry reception 
in general.

Here is a page that I referred to often when I was getting started (not that 
I'm all that advanced NOW!) and besides this specific page, there is an 
endless amount of info on that site if you wish to scan the menu options 
across the top:

While awaiting "parts" to assemble my station, I am interested in the 
TELEMETRY reception from the birds.  I was looking at the "Leader Board" for 
FOX-1A on Amsat.org.  Looking at some of those stations posted there I 
noticed that FoxTerm 1.04f software listed, but no TNCs.  Now I am confused.

I believe that the FoxTerm software may decode received audio from the 
passes, but what about other satellites.  Is a TNC needed, especially with 
the 9600 baud?

I'm sorry, I am trying to figure out HOW to receive and decode the telemetry 
signals and just do not comprehend the procedures.  The AMSAT website does 
not seem to supply that information, and neither does the "Getting Started 
2016" book.

If it is too much to answer here, please contact directly at my email:
