Sometimes everybody sleeps in, and you will see only the periodic, short beacons, which does include
DUV telemetry.  Part of the energy management system.  My station was running while I was sleeping,
and did capture a few blocks, but I have beams, etc.

<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!
