[amsat-bb] AO-85 data mode

Unfortunately, high speed data mode only runs for 15 minutes, then back to
transponder mode. Europe and South America get the ends of Ascending and
Descending passes where we enable it, but JA is just too far from a command
station. Sorry!

Any chance of leaving it in high-speed mode for a full orbit sometime in the
future so us non-Unitedstatesians can have a crack at those decodes? :)
