RE:RE: Observed AO-40 FEC coded telemetry

There is nothing wrong with the encoded transmission from AO-40 in FEC 
mode.  The data are there and recoverable.

As was indicated, there is a minor problem with the decoding software 
relating to the variable time between downlinked FEC blocks.
Some users have gotten around this by repeatedly starting and stopping the 
decoding program.   Phil Karn is working on a fix for this minor issue.
