The source code for the decoder is what I am really interested in, and I had found the link to Phil Karns code on his site but was reluctant to use it since it is a tarzip and apparently not under source control hence probably not the latest; his site was last updated Dec 2010. The thinking is that the svn repository would contain decoder bug fixes and mods.

The stuff *without* the GUI is probably more useful to begin with,
since you'd pretty much need to write the GUI from scratch ;-)

HDLC frames, y'say?  Wonder if this could be used as an alternative to
AFSK for packet?

Yeah.  You know what?  Github.  Or Gitorious.  Or something like that -
there's bound to be an Subversion-based similar site.  I used to run my
own Git repo for things like lysdr and aprsmap.  Now they can be found on


because it's more fun writing code than maintaining servers, and life's too
short to do both.
