Hi Rudy,

Unfortunately the RigBlaster does not decode anything, it just
routes signals between a PC sound card and a transceiver.  It
is a handy device today while we feed all sorts of devices to
the sound card and insist on keeping a microphone connected on
standby as well.  FYI RigBlaster http://www.westmountainradio.com/

On a related note regarding sound card decoding of PSK400, here
is a recent exchange with one of the authors of DigiPan PSK31:

 >> Hello Skip and Nick,

 >We are looking at it already, Pat. I doubt if it will show up

 >a base.
 >Skip KH6TY

FYI MixW32 http://users.nais.com/~jaffejim/mixwpage.htm

Who knows if MixW32 will be the easy way to go as far as sound
card decoders and PSK400 go, but the race is on.  We shall see.
