I think 8PSK modes are only useful if the connection goes over one hop
This time I had to make several decoding attempts before I got the 
8PSK-125 text halfway complete.   For 8PSK you need audio in O = 4-5 
quality, otherwise you can forget it.
Whether LSB, USB, S-DSB, each time just another part of the text was 
Such a narrow mode - that's nothing for the side band of a radio 
transmitter - this is a waste of bandwidth, with the risk of erroneous 
A combination mode of 2xMFSK-32 or 3xMFSK-32 would make more sense, the 
bandwidth would be available, the mode would remain robust.
