It does not appear much audio is coming out of the VAC port when drying to
decode 9.6 kbs   FLEX dimo this rig as satellite ready over a year ago it is
time for them to keep their promise.

According to Flex, the data through VAC has the standard voice pre/post
emphasis filtering and limiting, which should make 9600 baud problematic.
They do have a request in for a way to bypass all that.  The equivalent of
the direct connections in conventional rigs.  This does have applicability
to WINLINK as well, which helps our case.  Probably not in the upcoming "60
meter" PowerSDR release, but perhaps in the next.  Both MixW and AGWPE are
known to work well at 9600 baud, so that is what I am planning to use.  They
already work fine at 1200 baud.

Is anyone on the list using a FLEX radio to decode the 9.k kbs sats and if
so what software are you using?
