If you just looking for plain radio-sound without distortion, then the audio
processor from the german company NTI (he also produces the Digitex) will do
the job just fine. The original bandwindth of the audiosignal should not be
more then 380 kHz. The connection to the satellite receiver goes via the
baseband-connector. Now the sad side of the story: with around 1200
Deutschmark it is not a bargain.
If you like to contact Mr. Ille from NTI: NTI, P.O.Box 103, D-79507
