actually I'm a bit rusty on my c but can someone help to mod the tzap.c program to enable 
a -h (human readable output)

if you can put the following in to the tzap.c source and have a switch like femon to 
output signal % and SNR % values

         fprintf (stderr,"status %02x | signal %3u%% | snr %3u%% | ber %08x | unc %08x | ",
                 ( _signal * 100) / 0xffff,
                 (snr * 100) / 0xffff,
                  ber, uncorrected_blocks);
