Hi Jeff,

At thi9s moment there are 2 types of 1k2 AFSK transmission from satellites:

1) Telemetry in UI-Frames (like COMPASS-1, SEEDS, CUTE1.7APD-II) and
2) Telemetry in RAW AX.25 frames (AO-27)

For the first satellites you can use standard soundcard software for packet
radio (UI-View, MixW etc.) to decode the frame headers. 

But for both cases you need an KISS file to decode the telemetry values.
There is a lot of telemetry decoding software on my website based on *.kss
files. See here: www.dk3wn.info/software.shtml

You can find also a special software to produce an KISS files with
AGW-Packet Engine (it's a really new BETA version).
If you have any question, please don't hesitate to ask me.

73, Mike

Betreff: [amsat-bb] AFSK and other cube-sat modes

I'm reluctant to post this question because it may be a frequently asked 
question, but my searches are not yielding good results.

I have been searching the net for a Windows program that can decode 
AFSK and other typical cube-sat downlink telemetry.

I've used programs like DigiPan, WinPSK, etc.. and either I don't have 
them configured or they don't decode AFSK, X.25, and other nominal 
cube-sat downlink telemetry.

Help.. Where do I get Windows based software to do this ?

I'm using a RigBlaster-Plus with IC-910.
