[amsat-bb] FoxTelem Program Java aspect crashes every day now

My FoxTelem program never crashes, however it never decodes anything either. I can have a perfect overhead pass and using my FCD+ it sometimes will actually get an eye but never decode anything. The find satellite or Doppler lock is pretty much worthless here. The same setup on AO73 gets solid Doppler locks and decodes packets all the way across the sky. I am always bewildered to hear other users saying they are getting 45 packets or so from AO85. All the rocket science should be out of the way and this part should be pretty straight forward.

As an aside, the FoxTelem program for the Mac requires you to downgrade from the latest Java to V6 - I’d love to work use the app but don’t want to have to replace the latest Java with a lesser less secure version.  I know it’s an issue with OS X and am sure the authors would prefer it wasn’t so but w/o some kind of workaround I’m reluctant to mess with it.
