An RFSpace SDR-14 was used on the Green Bank 100 meter Radio Telescope 
to copy the Mars Phoenix Lander during its descent.  The transmission 
copied was on 401.585825 MHz.  The software used was SpectraVue that was 
written by Moetronix and supplied by RFSpace.  Details at

This suggests that if you have an old large C band dish sitting around, 
you can attach a good RF front end and follow up with something like the 
SDR-14 or SDR-IQ you too can copy interesting stuff from space.
