Sorry if this was covered elsewhere, but if mbelib captures Opensky packets, and the DV Dongle (with AMBE vocoder) hardware and software is fully documented and available, couldn't mbelib use the DV Dongle to decode/monitor Opensky? Wouldn't this also solve the "patent issue" with the mbelib AMBE software decoding? (kudos to dsdauthor for your efforts to date!)

I think they need raw audio samples of Open Sky so they can develop a means to decode it.

And yes, the work being done is great indeed. If it will ever be possible to monitor Open Sky it will come from computer software, not a scanner.
