Yes ... until EbNaut came along, WOLF was the most impressive weak signal mode.

Joe has raised those questions before, and I've assumed that he has not 
been happy with the responses, including mine. Maybe a greater number of 
opinions would be of help.

Regarding #2, the averaging or summing of results worked very well in 
WOLF. Of course, since the message length was 96 seconds, you could 
collect quite a few of them before running out of patience (or FETS). 
Since Joe is hinting at shorter message times in his proposed new mode, 
don't reject the summing aspect until we know the parameters.
