NOTE1: When you receive a satellite signal with a sound card directly,
       Control Panel - Hardware and Sound - Sound - Recording - Microphone
        - Right click - 'Set as Default Device', not 'Stereo Mix'.

NOTE2: You can decode even the following method. Take a cursor to the bar of
       the waterfall of MixW and slide in the part of the red triangle bar
       while pressing the Ctrl_key. The window of "RX(1)-PACKET" appears then.
       The decode data are displayed there when you take a red triangle bar
       to the width of the reception signal.
          MixW - Mode settings - Packet - Modem - PSK
          Sound Recoder - Effects - Decrease Volume
