I tried earlier today with a handheld Arrow II yagi connected directly
to WBX. I could hear it but it was too weak to decode. A bigger yagi
should give sufficient signal.
In case you receive, it is very easy to decode the telemetry. It uses
1200 bps AFSK FM modulating the carrier, so a simple NBFM receiver and
the audio fed to e.g. multimon
(http://www.baycom.org/~tom/ham/linux/multimon.html) works. Decoded
telemetry can be submitted to the ops team at

Have fun!
