You need SSB to receive the telemetry correctly.

 MD> What other birds can be 'heard' using a SSB/CW rig ?

Quite a few!  Check out www.amsat.org, but for voice, try RS-13, FO-20, FO-29,
AO-10, RS-15.  Also a couple, such as UO-11, which are orbiting beacons.

I run mostly FM, but want to go to L/S on AO-40 :)
