    The times came from looking at the boot rom source code.

Thanks, Randy, as i've been been listening 5 KHz off in USB mode, so this
should help.  So the packets should be long enough for the unaided ear to
determine modulation, unlike one of the other birds (i forget which) where
the packets were so short that i couldn't tell if it was data or just a
carrier.  So they should be 4 min. and 10 sec. apart in MBL mode, and i
can tune away for 10-20 sec. and not miss the start/end of a packet one
if one is clever or quick enough.

I'm hoping we can get some clear skies at some point, so i can look for
the visual reflector satellite to make sure my antenna is pointed in the
right direction.  OPAL packets are so quick that i can't use them to aim
