WTF? For suitable versions of "current", perhaps!

I'll say.

It's one of the odd things I've noticed about software for amateur 
radio, though.  It all seems to be really badly written shareware for 
old versions of Windows, with no source code available and quite often a 
fee required to "unlock" the useful bits - which, if it hasn't been 
updated in ten years, you may not be able to get any more!

I would have thought that radio amateurs would have grokked the concept 
of open source, if anyone did...
