The voice is that of Veronica Monteiro, the daughter of Tony Monteiro,
AA2TX (SK), former AMSAT VP Engineering and principle designer of the
Fox satellites. The voice beacon "Hi, this is amateur radio satellite
Fox-1" is transmitted when the transponder has not been keyed up for
three minutes. The subaudible telemetry is also transmitted while the
beacon is active, allowing ground stations to collect telemetry when
there are no users on the satellite.
