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.

Who is she and why did she announce her presence the other evening? (~0300 UTC Wednesday / 2200 CDT Tuesday) For me, it was right about/after AOS but I'm sure she wasn't talking solely for my benefit. Mode change? Reboot? Desperate plea for help?
