RE: I demand a recount!


I've not tried the IZ8BLY program, I looked at the blurb on the web site,
but in order to get capture files in Archive Format, I have to set it up to
send to P3T via TCP/IP, ... which seems a bit around the houses. The regular
save format of the program is incompatible with the archive, ... which is a
shame because it wouldn't take long to fix.

But anyway the AO40RCV program is real easy to use, and it works, AND saves
logs in the correct format for the archive, ... it will be interesting when
the other features are added.

I was originally using the demodulator program for the EVM, but
it needs more work.  I also tried the IZ8BLY program, but I found
it a bit clumsy to use.
