Help and Tutorials:

FoxTelem comes with a manual which you can find from the Help menu. It covers the basics, but Software Defined Radio, Digital Signal processing and telemetry are non trivial topics. It's relatively easy to decode the first few frames, but you can spend a lifetime perfecting your ground station. These articles are aimed at taking you a step beyond the basics.
