Hi all,

I've tested again the SDR recordings I did of the XW-2 satellites back
in the days when they were launched. These were quick and dirty
recordings, so the signal is not very good many times.

I've been able to decode plenty of 9600bps packets from XW-2D using
direwolf. I haven't been able to decode any  packets from the rest of
the satellites, but that's probably because the signals were not good
enough and had QSB.

If anyone wants to test decoders, you can use the following file, which
comes from my recording of XW-2D and for me produces many decodes using
direwolf (I haven't tested other programs).
