[digi-voice] Digital voice over high-speed packet

Is this a QAM-modulated audio subcarrier over FM or SSB?

Another approach to consider for an NBFM radio would be multi-level FSK. This
would be similar to MFSK16 on HF. 4 levels at 9600 Baud produces 19.2 kbps and 8
levels 28.8 kbps. The data can be encoded so that there is no DC component.
