Could you please redo that:
- in patch format (=only the additions)
- equally for tzap, czap, szap and femon?

Thus everybody could take advantage from that idea.
Would be a pleasure for us all if you did!

My idea for further enlargement (a quite old idea of mine):
route the human readable numbers into a speech recognition engine (festival) 
to make them auditable and thus real usable for DVB-S dish tuning f. ex.

Note: If the DVB-S dish is far away from the machine (card), auditable signals 
are necessary.
