10.4.45 - Remove Isolated Streaks

Good for certain types of noise removal, particularly single-line impulse noise encountered in sequential RGB AFSK image transmission.

This works by looking at all three channels, determining if there is little change in two of them vertically (pixels above a line vs. pixels below a line under test), yet a large change in the third; when this condition is detected, the large change is replaced with the average value created from the line above and the line below.

Because sequential RGB AFSK image transmission sends the red, green and blue channels one after another, the odds are that short bursts of interference with one channel will not affect another channel, and this is what makes the other two channels good tests for interference in the third.
