[Linrad] Re: [wsjtgroup] MAP65 crashes under Win XP

Hi Jeff,

I expect that your problem may have to do with Linrad not knowing 
anything about the frequency that your SoftRock is receiving.  Therefore 
  Linrad can't send correct frequency information to MAP65.  MAP65 
expects to see a center frequency label as part of each data packet 
received from Linrad.

I'm leaving for the airport in a few minutes; next week I'll be home 
again and will make you a special version of MAP65 that should let you 
operate this way.  In the meantime, you might let us know what frequency 
your Softrock is tuned to.  Is it constant?  Do you have 1 144-to-28 (or 
some such) converter ahead of it?
