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.
To make it official: You may post your recordings of Veronica's AO-95 beacon to Wikimedia Commons. For proper credit, the voice is that of Veronica Monteiro. (She is the daughter of SK VPE Tony Monteiro, AA2TX.)
The audio used in the Fox-1 beacons is a hybrid version of several tracks of Veronica's spoken "Hi! This is amateur radio satellite Fox-n" and "Fox-1n Safe Mode" that were recorded by Burns Fisher, WB1FJ, in 2014-2015. I edited and processed them to produce the beacons that fit the duration and audio frequency range requirements of the Fox-1 satellites.
The "Fox tail" is a descriptive tag that someone came up with during testing I believe, I don't recall who first used it but it became common use in Engineering that everyone knew what specific trait you were talking about. I don't know if that requires any claim or explanation on Wikimedia Commons, I'm just saying that it is not any kind of official or copyright/trademark name for the carrier frequency "swoosh".
