RUDAK on Aug 6

Testing continued on the DSP modulators this morning  - at 0445 local :(
Five new DSP code chunks were uploaded and tested.  Some go one step 
further than previous tests and utilize more of the hardware.  A couple 
were tested with some success and two didn't work quite as 
expected.  Another test was done on the 153k6 modulator to characterize its 
behavior when the encoder is on, scrambler off and bits are being sent to 
it.  Again we ran out of time in the window while uploading code that will 
send bits to one of those DSP modulators.  Work may continue tomorrow 
depending on the results of some off-line tests.
The -33 dB carrier at 11.1 IF was off for nearly all of the window while 
that modulator was being used to test code.  It was set up again at about 
1245 U.
Work continues full speed to build a specialized DSP test bed for use in 
developing and testing code on the ground.  The objective remains to create 
links using the DPSs that can be accessed with reasonable equipment.
