Assuming David is asking about digital satellite operations, I guess I 
would pose the question--what other modes are digital satellites currently 
using?  If your modem will run in KISS mode, you can use Wisp.  I can't 
think of what else there is right now on the digital birds...

I've found Wisp to be very good at allowing me to run .bat files for a 
specific bird before each pass (to load a certain modem code--1200, 9600, 
or 38k4-- to reconfigure my dsp, for example), or even to launch another 
program at the time of a pass (a dumb terminal program to work the FO-20 
BBS, for example).  It seems quite flexible to me.  Maybe I lack imagination :)
