I'd love to get involved in that, and indeed I think a lot of the
current thread was spawned by a discussion of tracking the F-1 sat.
Unfortunately, there is only a Windows binary available of this
software. I know amateur radio is a technical hobby, but I haven't the
inclination to be a computer nerd as well, and I haven't the time,
inclination or money to buy another computer and a copy of Windows and
all the expensive training courses.
I do wonder if having the telemetry in an unpublished format counts as
using a "secret code"?
