This is the only way to receive it. A hair under
145.9 MHz. I've received it (albeit not at apogee :-)
with an IC-202 and a dipole.

Lots of people have put recordings on the web, and you can
hear mine at http://www.qsl.net/ve7ldh/sounds.html

Have a look at http://www.amsat.org and see for yourself.
