It appears as though you can use 20150 for the reception of combined 
data, but only on the satgate.aprsca.net domain.  This would allow you 
to uplink the 9600 baud telemetry data AND receive any other APRS-IS 
data with the same client connection.  However, the 9600 baud telemetry 
data would still be confined to the separate network.  The 9600 baud 
telemetry data can ONLY be received on port 20150.
