AO-40 Telemetry Capture under Linux



Hi Douglas,

Software for the various platforms can be found here:

http://www.amsat.org/amsat/sats/ao40/ao40-tlm.html

Notes on telemetry capture can be found here:

http://www.amsat.org/amsat/sats/ao40/capture_notes.txt

The notes talk about Windows but its still valid for other platforms, ... a
lot of the telemetry in the archive was captured under Linux, ... but I
can't say what products as I use Windows.

Cheers
Paul, VP9MU
