Would you happen to have a recent set of keps for Unisat-6? Searched 
Celestrak for catalog  # 40012, but haven't found it yet.

Yes, I've had great results decoding XW-2F with the Funcube Dongle and 
UZ7HO's 9k6 modem. The problem is that I haven't been able to do the 
same with the Kenwood TS-2000 and SCS Tracker modem which is G3RUH / 
GMSK compatible.

Any other reliable 9600 baud sats on your list?
