Reading the mail over the last week re Falconsat reception.

Not listened personally, but my thoughts went back to the early days of 9k6
when we upgraded the filters on our rigs to 15kHz for optimum performance
for 9k6.

These days with SDR's and the nice software packages that are available you
can "make you own" filters for the various digital modes currently flying,
4k8, 9k6 and 19k2.

I have found 15Khz is optimal for most of the current 9k6 G3RUH satellite
downlinks and 20kHz for the 9k6 GMSK Downlinks.

Using Funcube Dongle Pro+ and SDR Console Version 3.0 with UZ7HO Decoder. 

As yet cannot vouch for Falconsat.
