Hi Dan,
we have tested two alternatives: one is a decoder on a PC Card and the 
other one is a commercial set top box.
The PC Card that we tested is Technotrend S2-3200 (around €60,00) and 
you can also use a very powerful software TUTIONNE (free) developed by 
Jean Pierre F6DZP. There is also a cheaper version, which F6DZP tested, 
which is Technotrend S2-1600. Check that your PC can host a standard PCI 
The set top box that we tested is Megasat 400 (around €40/50) but most 
of commercial set top boxes are specified to work from 1 to 45 MSym/s. 
Remember that HAMTV can transmit a 1.3 MSym/s or a 2.0 MSym/s stream.
