I am investigating the Icom PCR-1000 for receiving the TMSAT 38K4 downlink,  it 
has a 50KHz filter that may work.  I have been running it as the receive side of 
the station since the weekend on the 9600 satellites,  and it seems to be 
performing as well as the Icom-821H.  Just added another class to JStation that 
talks to the PCR-1000 for frequency control ;-)

As soon as I get a 38K4 modem and TMSat has some kind of schedule setup,  I will 
give it a try.

Not very good for northern lattitudes ;-(
