It is a consideration for sure, and something that if we can shoehorn it into our current INOmini 635 SiteStreamer™ which is meant to monitoring a translator, it would be ideal. You could have an alarm that if you didn’t receive the ID every hour, then it would add that to the alarm log and send you a text and/or email.
The INOmini 635 SiteStreamer™ currently does this for missing, or mismatched RDS PI codes.

Subject: RE: [CRTech] Translator IDs
I asked them back when I bought a pira 175 analyser and it did not, and I don’t think it was something they were interested in adding. Of course It couldn’t hurt to ask again, If they see more request’s, perhaps that would make it more appealing to add for them.
AS for the SDR option, sounds viable, anyone know how to code it? You can get the dongles for $20 or less, and use with a laptop.
To Ben @ innovonics, How hard would it be to add to one of your monitors? They are basically SDR’s anyway right?

This looks promising. The author may be able to add FSK detection to his software, if it isn't already there.
There are also NUMEROUS ham radio related SDR dongles, software, etc. that could be adapted for this purpose.

Would be nice if someone produced software or an App for an SDR dongle to decode it. They can decode many other modes, can they decode FSK?
