Re: decode packet with modem/tnc or soundcard.

Hello unknown Italian man,

You can decode ISS packet with your soundcard.
But you have to build an interface to protect your soundcard!!!

If you are SWL station, you need to build something with
1 transformer.

First you need AGW packet soundcard driver.

After starting AGW than start UISS:

Use google search engine to find websites where
they explain how to configure the softare.
