Apparently GO-32 has crashed its software and is in a safe mode.
It is transmitting a single burst of 9600 baud every 30 seconds,
but it is not decodable on a monitoring TNC, because the PID in
that safe mode packet is non-standard. (Im guessing here)

This is why you can monitor the 9600 baud downlink and not have
megabytes of packets overflowing your monitor, because all BBS
traffic is sent with a different PID than normally used for
conventional UI packets.  But all beacons, bulletins and APRS
packets are all using the standard PID.
(Protocol Identification Byte).

So we are kind of in standby until GO-32 software is reloaded...

Hang in there...
