How many guys are getting these units?  It looks like they might be able to
decode PSK31 at a minimum.

On other forums, there is a discussion about whether they can do SDR work,
as they only have a mono mic sound input, even though the sound chip itself
can do stereo.  One can always use an exernal USB sound card.

A bigger issue may be the low storage.  Only 1GB of RAM as storage , and no
rotating memory.

Back to bit-twiddling and assembly languge or C to tweak the last byte out.

I'm on the fence whether to go for the two-for-one deal....
