[amsat-bb] Fox high speed?

A few days ago the satellite switched from DUV to HS shortly before my
LOS. The program was set to "auto" and I was able to decode and
uploaded my first six frames of HS data. Using V:1.03-h, the s/w
worked as expected..
That is what HS looks like. There have been 2-3 other periods of HS
telemetry over the past few days.
In the ones I saw or heard, my software did not automatically switch,
and when manually switched
copied nothing. There are known issues with HS in my station which I am
working on, so that is not
entirely unexpected. I was able to copy a few blocks on a much earlier
test. From other comments,
you do need a stronger signal than DUV, and depending on your equipment,
a higher sampling rate.

<About mid-pass on the ~9:42AM pass this morning, FOX appeared to switch
from the DUV mode to

usual 2 parallel line pattern

high speed; same results. What
