Hi All.

If I'm not mistaken, from what I have read on Moon-net already, there is an
intent to put Q65 on Map65.
I really don't know much beyond that. PA5Y made some recordings to help
make that possible. If Map65 is to
improve in any way, I think this is the time. It is very useful as is, but
I think there are plenty of things that could
be improved about it. I hope it will still run on XP. My Delta44 runs on XP
because that driver works.


WB9UWA.
