Re: DOS programs for decoding P3D telemetry



Please give the command line parameters for this.  I can run pskdec.exe and
it picks up the p3d.wav file, but when I tlmdec.exe, all I get is:

    ----OE1KIB, OE1VKW,  -F1HDD --------(c) AMSAT-F 2000-------

That's all I get...  Any suggestions?

Tnx es 73,
Joel, K2SAT
