That's exactly what I was asking. But you implied that the RX02 was
MMFM, which, in my experience is not the case.
MFM is a (1,3) RLL code; MMFM is a (1,4) code. AFAIK, RX02 is a
combination of (0,1) for headers and (1,3) for data. WHat the decoded
clock and data bits actually mean is a separate issue.
