Stress test:   MFSK16 versus OL-8-1K in a Wave Editor

1.)  as a mix, in one file, simultaneously, both modes @1500 Hz AF 
overlapping:  2 x  100% decoding.

2.) Finally, with additional strong (overdriven) white noise, the winner 
becomes clear:

MFSK16 continues to be 100% decoding, the pattern is still visible in 
the waterfall. OL-8-1K now with some errors in the text, at last.

MFSK-16 +  Olivia-8-1000     @ 1500 Hz
Modes must be set manually, overlapping RSIDs not working:



(The MFSK-16 + OLIVIA-8-1000 audio comes from the System-D stream of WRMI)

But, at another competition in the wave-editor:

MFSK-16 against MFSK-16, same data, but a delay of 100ms:          50% 

OL-8-1000 vs OL-8-1000, same data, again a delay of 100ms:        100% 
decoding !!!

OLIVIA is thus the winner in the case of strong multipath.

MFSK16 is better at weak one-way paths.
