Take a look at the SDR programs like Gqrx and the like.

Here is a link that gives you an example of decoding POCASG using 
multimon-ng (you will have to scroll down to see the section on this):


You should be able to also use a program like rtl_fm and pipe the output 
into multimon-ng to decode the data (skipping the need to use nc and gqrx).

(You will need one of those cheap under $20 DVB-T+DAB-FM usb decoders at 
the least to do this with and an antenna to pick the traffic up-- the 
NooElec and clones you can find on Amazon).
