+In this case I use a Raspberry PI and run NMT network with multiple channels.
+It is almost at the limit, since I have around 90% CPU usage of the main thread.
+It wouldn't work to have 2 transceivers at 200KHz Bandwidth without fast math approximation.
+Use '--fast-math' to increase processing speed.
