Dear All,

SEEDS in Packet mode FM, Object J
Sorry about the 57 MB file size as this is a wav file.

Cute-1.7 + APDII and COMPASS-1, Object C.

Thanks to Mineo-San, JE9PEL for introducing Tunaterm for copying SEEDS
Packets.  Could someone please help me on the following as I am still having
problem to copy SEEDS packets.

1. I tried MixW2, TNC emulation, N8VB com port redirector, and Tunaterm.
Tunaterm successfully decodes a bunch of Binary data, but because MixW2 is
emulating a KISS TNC instead of a normal TNC, I am not sure if the data is

2. I tried also KPC-3+ in KISS and non-kiss mode directly with Tunaterm.
Unfortunately Tunaterm did not successfully decode any packets except for
one or two.  

I believe the SEEDS packet were standard AX.25 1200 baud packets?  Could
someone kindly guide me to the right path.  Thank you very much in advance.
