OK. This is the data rate Linrad should expect.

Good reason to ask:-)

The similar value in par_ssb is (was) used to check that the file really
was saved for hardware configured to run at that speed. When the
speed difference is above limit (1% or so, do not remember) you
should be prompted to the parameter setup routine. 

As it turns out, this test no longer works, so now the user may 
enter receiving from a soundcard at 48 kHz with parameters
that were set up for the Perseus at 2 MHz. Might be ok, but the 
other way around would likely cause the system to hang. When running
at 2 MHz one has to be careful about cpu load.....

I will put the test back.
