Re: linrad-02.41 and 02-42

I am using 2.35 in a windows executable format. Since I am using a PC 
with Windows XP, I am not sure I can use 2.41 or 2.42. If it is 
available for a windows machine, I will be glad to use it. I'm doing 
well with the version I am running. During the VHF contest this weekend, 
I could readily find microwave stations who were off frequency. It made 
things easier for me.
