RE: OK I give!


As a newbie to 9600 baud digital modes on the sats I was also surprised 
that I could not hear much. There is a definite rise in the noise level - 
you can see it on the AO-40Rec screen. You can see the signal on a 
Discriminator meter if your radio has one. Probably just cracking the 
squelch is a good idea. When they kicked up the power the other day, the 
signal went full quieting. Once I got MixW working and a good set of keps 
the telemeter is decoded long before you notice a signal present.  I don't 
see anything in the waterfall but that may be because I don't have it set 
up proper.
