[Moon-Net] FUNCUBE and MAP65 experience

Hi Jan

My setup is very similar to yours except I use the Funcube Pro+ AND 
Linrad, which then drives MAP65 via a network connection. I have 
tried the Funcube directly feeding MAP65 and have found things don't 
work as well as when I use Linrad as well. One reason I think this 
Linrad makes the difference it does is that it has a much better 
noise blanker than does MAP65 (which I never enable). I also run 
WSJT10 and my experience has been that most of the time, both MAP65 
and WSJT10 will decode reliably but there are times one will decode 
while the other doesn't. Hence the reason for running both!
