Hi Steve,

The most helpful thing would be to get any telemetry you can.  The Hamscope 
software uses your radio speaker out to computer soundcard and does a good 
job decoding the CW if you keep the signal centered.  This is easy to do as 
there is a good graphical display.  In addition it will save the CW TLM  to 
a text file.
Getting actual telemetry values from satellite will be the most helpful to 
the command stations.
