RE: Re: UO-14 digital looptest 9600bps and 1200bps

Hello Chris.

You _will_ get degredation of the modulated data waveform, as there is no
regeneration on the satellite now, and any errors in the frequency, phase or
step response of the transponder are additive, as well as Doppler errors and
the like.  Also, while the individual Tx and Rx are 9600 baud capable, what
about the analogue interconnection between the two?
