Hmmm, Joe Taylor still lives in Princeton, NJ, USA and has developed more
sound card modes than are used on HF.  FSK441 for meterior scatter, JT6M
for 6m EME, JT65 for weak signal EME, JT44 and older EME mode.  He's also
working on a new EME mode.

Wasn't MFSK16 done by ZL1BPU?  Isn't ZL1 New Zealand? :)

Agreed.
