I’m in favor. I cannot think of a reason why it shouldn’t be on Wikipedia and in wiki commons.
I will ask the rest of the board today.

I recorded some very high quality beacons for AO-95, and was hoping to put them in wiki commons for inclusion on the AO-95 wikipedia page. However before doing so you are warned about copyrighted material and I realize that uploading that recording is likely no different than uploading anybody else's musical or spoken word work.
I also took a screen grab of the waterfall showing the characteristic "fox tail", which I believe is free and clear - and I checked the AMSAT website regarding copyrighted material and it only mentions audio used on the AMSAT website (I think).
Anyhoo, can I get written permission to post beacon recordings to wiki commons (wikipedia)? Do I need to go through the website form (it doesn't really to "work" for recorded audio, only images) If not, no biggie.
Happy Thanksgiving, all!
