I have checked the two latest editions of the BSR program, which are 
available on the Internet.
With a spectral scan, I found the corresponding signals quite quickly 
(visually) at the end of the November issue.
The CW signals were very easy to decode - with FLDIGI.
The MFSK signals, however, were of poor quality, without RSID, on 
crooked audio frequencies.
An MFSK16-txt track was found at 526 Hz, with +/-2 Hz tolerance and a 
subsequent MFSK16-pic track at 553 Hz, with incredible +/-1 Hz 
tolerance, to get at least fragments of the image txt-header.
In order to get a valid 100x100c image trigger, I had to generate my own 
audio and put it in the right place.
This "digital BSR challenge" was quite a tricky thing.
