[amsat-bb] AO-85 data

I tried to catch the 1005 UTC pass of AO-85 this morning for data
collection. I figured with an 88 degree elevation I couldn't miss. It's
perfect for my eggbeater antenna. But, using HDSDR and Foxtelem, I only
saw about 3 or 4 short transmissions spread out over the whole pass. I
didn't decode any data. 

Does AO-85 only transmit slow DUV when there are voice transmissions?
Were the short transmissions that I saw the "fast data" stream? Was
anyone on voice on AO-85 this morning? 

Thanks for your help!
