It is 16 gb (class 6 if I see right), but really not have to bee so big. I
think system takes currently 3 gb. I will send you a copy. I think I try
dropbox, if it is hopeles (thro mobile internet) I can send cd over mail.

A the moment I can see partially decoded thor22, I see callsign OE5RTL on
fldigi. Signal is strong and audible, I think cpu load is main problem.
By the way, fldigi alone can decode modes like psk500r or anything else on
pi, I have tried it with andpskmail.

Next have to find way to optimise a little...I have a feeling that only
little more power is  needed to make this reliable, not only runnable :)

BTW you can try command "top" on pi terminal, on most linux systems it will
show memory information I think. I have also Task Manager on system tools
-menu, I think it have come with pi:s OS, wheezy.
