I keep my TAPR-PSK on a book shelf, just cause it looks cool.

Likely any version of TLMDC I turn up would be ancient history.
I was helping Jim and Bruce with some documentation of that pre-launch.
Moved away from Denver late 1990, and slowly slipped away from Microsats.
Never had a copy of Wisp even. Seems there was something else I used
for saving raw KISS streams ... Seems there were some utilities for
post processing KISS files. Maybe I can find some old backup floppies.
  Did not the PG/PB suite have something for collecting KISS ?

Well, if my other dozen or so projects don't mind - I may at least listen
for it. It would be nice to hear the buzz again.

   Thanks  /;^)
