A quick question for Bob Bruninga.
I just read your article in the AMSAT JOURNAL regarding QIKCOM-2 and it's DTMF input. 
The example you use to determine the DTMF string to transmit your call & grid usesyour 6 charachter call. I didn't see anything (unless I missed it) about shot er calls. I presume the receiver on the satellite will be expecting 16 DTMF tones. How do I account for my 5 character call? 
I followed your example as best I could and came out with the following for K7TEJ & DM33:
Did I get it right? If not, what did I miss?
Thanks in advance. I'm looking fowarding to trying this bird out.
