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I do wonder if having the telemetry in an unpublished format counts as 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"?
