    145.825 MHz.  It's telemetry encoded as AX.25 packet data.  I've heard it
    while listening for PCSat on the same frequency, but I haven't tried to
    decode the Starshine telemetry.  There's software that will use your
    soundcard to decode the data from the audio.  If you have a scanner or a ham
    radio that can tune in that frequency you could possibly setup your PC to
    examine the telemetry.
