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

A work in progress, one thing for consideration is that Chris also has
to work with me to provide versions that do Fox-1Cliff/D for our testing
of those as well as providing us the way to reliably get data to and
mine data from the server as we check out AO-85, so his time is
divided.  The plus to that is that we are expecting releases before
1Cliff/D that will provide automatic slow/high speed data switching and
better performance as you all provide feedback to help him learn what
needs tweaking.  Testing FoxTelem on the ground with a satellite 3 feet
away or using a recording isn't the real deal of course, so just like
with the performance of Fox-1A AO-85 on orbit there are things to be
learned about real world performance of FoxTelem.

Remember - it's a hobby.     :-)

Thank you for your support.
