Re: Decoding SAFIR-1 from TRACE ON



SAFIR-M is transmitting only even numbers due to bit0=0 problem now.
This means SAFIR-M may transmit incorrect data. Non hex code character
should change. If you find '@'(=40hex) in the telemetory, you must
change '@' to 'A'(=41hex).

The correct telemetry on Andy, G0SFJ's trace file at 1859utc 31/12/02
is 000000A0008D8A244B00. Another odd numbers may be in the telemetry.
The accident error is +1.

  trace data (hex)   30 30 30 30 30 30 40 30 30 30 38 44 38 40 32 34 34 42 30 30

  correct data (hex) 30 30 30 30 30 30 41 30 30 30 38 44 38 41 32 34 34 42 30 30

                                       ^                    ^

Here is the table ascii/hex data.

       @       41       change 40(=A)
    *: not seen in telemetry (trace file)


I don't know why non hex characters (v,*) are in 1829utc 30/12/02
telemtry, 0000008v008*88244b00.
