Despite S5+ signals from some of these ORS satellites, we cannot decode them. Is there a terrestrial 9600 station in Los Angeles we can test against? Reply to -bb & off-list, since I get the digest.
Setup is FT-897, ubuntu linux, & soundmodem through the 9600 line on the data jack. A similar setup with an FT-817, and they can talk with each other, and we've tuned the levels by observing with a Funcube Dongle Pro (not +, at least not yet).
We scanned around the SCRRBA frequencies (431.1ish & 431.5ish) and didn't here anything
