What you do with the data is totally up to you. Many of us help these teams and forward telemetry information to them. Some teams have developed special software to decode the data and allow us to actively monitor the status of the satellite and any experiments.
I'd love to get involved in that, and indeed I think a lot of the current thread was spawned by a discussion of tracking the F-1 sat. Unfortunately, there is only a Windows binary available of this software. I know amateur radio is a technical hobby, but I haven't the inclination to be a computer nerd as well, and I haven't the time, inclination or money to buy another computer and a copy of Windows and all the expensive training courses.
I do wonder if having the telemetry in an unpublished format counts as using a "secret code"?
