I was under the impression that upon transmission the HDU undergoes
both a (36,20,17) Reed-Solomon encoding and a (18,6,8) shortened Golay
encoding and therefore would have to be error checked with both of
these for decoding. We are getting the data messages out of the HDU.
So how is this so if we are not doing the error check? Is it not
necessary for extracting the data information?
