[amsat-bb] Decoding GO-32 data

   I was wondering if anyone has tried to record a .WAV file of this bird &
decode it later on. I've seen some archived posts where MixW was used, but
it wasn't clear what the individual did to set up the software. I've tried
tinkering around myself with MixW - I played the file back & ran a cable
from the speaker out to the line in on my computer, but I don't think I had
the 9K6 protocol set properly in the program (basic changing of the
parameters didn't work either).

I guess I'm looking to "cheat" from you guys since I can't get any decodes.
Is what I'm trying to do even possible?

For a little info on my station setup:

audio is captured from the DATA port for 9K6 & higher speeds
auto track for antennas & doppler
Audio recording in 8khz mono (could there be a problem here???)

...I receive GO-32 quite well with an S-5 or better on some passes, so
receiving the signal is not an issue. Even if it's just sending telemetry
right now, it would be fun to play with the high-speed data. Is there
another program I could use for decoding the data? Any help is appreciated!
