Thanks for the clarification.

I don't think so. The signal I'm interested should use CCM, when asking 
for more details I was pointed to EN 302 307 annex H.2
Also ACM needs a return channel and I know for sure that in this case is 
not used.

Anyway ATM the feed is gone, but it should be up again next week with 
some minor modification, when it's ready I'll keep you informed.
