My answer to the question Where can I find the TLE of ExseedSat 1, India's first ever private LEO satellite? is currently that while 60+ objects are being tracked from this mutli-payload launch, ExseedSat has not yet been unambiguously identified, so it's impossible to know which TLE would belong to that satellite.

According to the ExseedSat1 webpage

As it orbits around the earth, every minute it will whistle out the letter ‘V’ in Morse code (remember Beethoven’s 5th symphony? Yes, those notes).

This will be followed by telemetry in radio teletype format. Watch a simulated test: https://youtu.be/da0y_InGffY

NOTE: if you watch the video, skip ahead to 05:14 or 1h 45m 15s on the display in the video to see the tape-measure antenna unwind and the satellite send it's "V".

The page goes on to identify the various teams involved, and many of the leads have callsigns.

I can keep an eye on the satcat report, but I don't know where to look to find out if there have been any reports of receiving any signal from this satellite? Is there a good place to watch for one?
