Re: WISP and CAT control



Hi Reid

FWIW last Sunday I retrofitted FT-100 and FT-817 CAT codes into WispDDE in
about 2 hours.

Although I've done my time in C and assembler writing system level code such
as device drivers, I am not a VB programmer, and this is the first time I've
ever done anything with VB.

http://chasque.chasque.apc.org/franky/wispdde/wispdde.htm has the source
code.
