DSCDecoder Now Decodes DGPS

Those looking for an inexpensive program that allows identification of mediumwave Differential GPS beacons may be in luck. The latest version of DSCDecoder, a terrific little shareware program available for 25 Euros from the COAA observatory site, now includes decode of several DGPS message types such as the satellite corrections and the almanac.

The download works for 21 days before registration and payment are necessary, and new users are advised to tweak everything in and see if they like the rather minimal user interface before registering. Upgrade is free for current users.

A description of features and link for a download are available at COAA's DSCDecoder page.
