If FX.25 is turned on - what affect is there on legacy AX.25 packets?
 Can the two modes run in parallel?

If I have DIREWOLF running as a digipeter - will digipeated AX.25
packets have FX.25 applied before they are sent?   Or is it FX.25 in -
FX.25 out?

Is there yet any idea of how this compares to the existing
single-bit-recovery correction scheme?

A landmark step forward for packet - thanks!!!
