Yes, I've seen that project; I looked at their code before starting to 
write this incarnation of JHamTune. I haven't been able to find any 
*client* code that uses the library, and portability of that C/C++ code 
across Linux/Mac/Windows can be problematic. 

When I'm ready to release JHamTune, I'm sure it would probably be a 
fairly simple matter to write a JHamTune driver that would call Hamlib 
through the Java Native Interface (on platforms that support Hamlib). 
But pure Java JHamTune radio drivers should work cleanly across all 
Java 2 supported platforms with no additional fussing around.

I'm almost happy with the frequency database part of JHamTune, and the 
band-sweeping and channel scanning controls are working pretty well so
