Bill, by chance are you wanting to see the actual printout of the Mic-E 
formated packet data string?

Several years ago, Ian Wade, G3nrw, wrote aprsdecd to decode the Mic-E 
packets that will probably do what you need.

There is a couple plain text description files included in this zip file..

I've used the program many times and its really cool...
