Guess I need to break down and install one of those
programs for the virtual audio cables. Which of those
software packages are you using?

If you were able to decode 41 packets from my RF
recording last night... wow! Time to get that software
running on my Windows 10 tablets, before heading off
to the AMSAT Symposium next week, and see if the
SDRplay receiver does that well with the data on other
AO-85 passes.

Thanks, and 73!
