Good to hear from you James. You'll be interested to know that I've
recently been using my FO-12 PSK modem & PK88 TNC for decoding signals
from Delfi-C3. It appears to be working much better than the RASCAL
sound card decoder. Unfortunately, I can't find and information on the
data format, so I can't be 100% certain whether the end results are
better. My posting about this seems to have been lost during the
excitement about the ISS & SSTV :-)
BTW nice pictures on those websites you mentioned.
