You can check your position and ensure your data has been uploaded by visiting:
Fox Telemetry DecoderYou can download the software from their website: https://www.amsat.org/foxtelem-software-for-windows-mac-linux/
I used my FunCube Pro-Plus dongle, as the software will recognise it and tune it automatically.
You can opt to feed sound using a virtual cable from another SDR or radio of choice.
here are a few screen shots of what M0JFP was able to get from AO-85

Having visited the Egham Raspberry Jam on a few occasions I decided to see if my 9 year old would be interested in having a go at Python and using the EDU KIT and learning how to read the temperature from the thermometer and convert it to both C and F on the screen.
This is the worksheet showing the circuit for the thermometer, the lights and buzzer are left on the board, but are not initially used or needed.
The above video shows the thermometer running and the output on the screen in C, holding it in my hands you can see the temp rise and then fall back to room temp
