Are you saying you can't decode packets from an audio recording of packets heard on your D72? I've not tried the D72 in this way but I have definitely done this with an old Kenwood TM-261a mobile radio, I believe my Icom IC-706MKIIG, and maybe my old Kenwood TH-G71A HT.
I recorded using PCM WAV 44.1 KHz 16 bit in Audacity and decoded with Soundmodem on Windows.
If this is your goal, what was your setup?
I should mention that not all packets decode even when they seem to sound loud/clean/etc.

So, after discovering that trying to process telemetry data from the audio log I recorded out of my D72A doesn't work at all, I'm kicking around the idea of getting an SDR receiver to monitor Fox/Funcube telemetry, as well as use for general HF/air band/satellite reception.
My first thought is to use an SDRplay hooked up to my computer as a more-or-less unattended monitoring station. I'm aware of the Funcube dongle, but it looks like the SDRplay is a little more versatile as far as general SDR use, not just sat telemetry. In theory it looks like I can set up HDSDR with an SDRplay to record automatically on intervals, and then process telemetry after the fact. In practice....Has anyone used this approach? Or have a better way?
My other question is about antennas. I know there isn't going to be any one antenna that will work for everything. At first I will probably just use a spare 2m/440 mag mount I have lying around, stuck on the metal roof of my house. Just curious what others are using?
