Ah.  If he has gotten the signal bandwidth within a typical 300-3kHz 
channel, then I'm very interested, especially if it shows up in QST or 
QEX sometime soon.  Haven't had any sort of urge to drag a PC into my 
all-Mac hamshack, but for digital voice I could easily be persuaded to 
break that rule, especially if i could dedicate a PC to voice and 
PSK31 .. ;-) .. and at that point it would be worth getting a dish and 
downconverter/transverter for my 10 meter rig ..
