AO40 telemetry analysis

Hi !

I was able to start RX operation on Ao40 two days ago with following
conditions :

Parabolic dish 24db ( aprox 50x50 )
Converter Kuhne electronic
10M RG213
AE4JY AO40Rcv on the soundblaster

The beacon is coming in very strong with 100% success rate in CRC.
I could also hear very well many stations.
I started my experiments in receiving Ao40 with 19 turns helix, but CRC
success rate was too low ( about 10% ) and I could just hear CW. My
experience is very similar to what K5OE described in his excellent web site

TX set-up is on the way and I plan to be able to be on the bird in about
10-15 days !

Right now I am collecting telemetry data and I am looking for a program that
can analyze/extract data from AO40Rcv files : any suggestion ?

Best 73 and happy ( ...and peaceful ! ) new year.
