The main UltraMSK command line options are -f, -b, -c and -r:

-f
sets the receiver centre frequency in Hertz eg. -f 19800, or -f 18600.000185
-b
specify the MSK baud rate. Most stations are 200 baud but some are 100 baud
-c
specify the signal call sign eg. -c NWC. The callsign is also used as the beginning of the data output file name eg. NWC20060704.txt
-r
specify the data output time resolution
