Still thinking about how cool this is going to be - decoding 9600
packet at a wide range of frequencies with the HDTV dongle SDR.   Hope
to get to try it soon.

A couple more ideas...

* It will probably possible to create a CD or file image of raw data
(audio) captured off the air.    Does anything like this currently
exist for testing?   A stock sound card setup probably won't work as
it doesn't have the bandwidth and discriminator audio.   Capturing
from the RT dongle should work???

* The next step - if we can decode 9600 packet from a dongle - why not
19200?   The Kantronics data radios would generate that.   Why not
56K?   More?   What is the bandwidth limit of the dongle receivers?
Since they're for TV I'd image it's 6 MHz...
