Well, we could write our own DSP16xx demodulate/modulate code[1]. It's
the sort of thing I used to consider fun.
But it's been a while since a played with (seriously) DSPs, and I was
using much simpler modulation schemes in terms of coding at least.
I'm also trying to help the linux-7110 effort so, umm, free time is a
little limited.

OTOH, I've been looking for some h/w like this for a while.. I might
have a "use" for it. Can anyone confirm the details?

other awkward opensource stuff.
