I know it doesn't make any sense but somehow that seems to have fixed it.
Great you made it work. That "fix" shouldn't make any difference, but who cares as long as you made it work
And by the way, great to see the GPS-output, makes it a lot easier to see what's going on

Shouldn't this just be equal to the creation of the signal for showing the text? If so, one could very simple decode the information on the ground and use it for tracking. This might be much smarter than an additional audio modem.
As far as I know, it should be more stable to use the audio for downlink (than teletext). Teletext could be an option, but it's a bit more difficult to read on the ground, and I would like to keep it simple.
I started to write the code for downlink, but never implemented it, as I got annoyed with the audio-performance by my Lawmate video-tx. A working test-sketch for audio-telemetry can be found a couple of posts ago. You should more or less be able to use it directly, but I would recommend some check-sum etc.
