For those interested, the PSAT signal works very well with HDSDR on a
FunCube Dongle Pro+.  You can control the "Tune" frequency from SatPCC32 or
in the case of an FM carrier like PSAT, let the quite decent FM AFC on HDSDR
track the frequency of the downlink.

I purchased a "Virtual Audio Cable" driver from Eugene Muzychenko Software.
http://software.muzychenko.net/eng/vac.htm It is fully functional in trial
mode but the watermark will drive you nuts. The nice thing is that you can
direct the output for the FCDPP to whatever software you are using and also
to redirect it to a secondary soundcard for you to hear.

Next weekend I will try WinPSK to see if it works in satellite mode full
duplex.  This will negate the need to run two instances of digipan to hear
myself while transmitting.
