HOpe this helps!!!
What the original poster was asking for is the source, rather than precompiled Windows and Mac OSX binaries.
The source doesn't seem to be available yet. It's a shame that closed-source software seems to be so common in amateur radio - you get people sharing all sorts of information, but they just don't seem to have grasped the idea that letting people see the source code is a Very Good Thing.
Yeah, absolutely this is a problem.
What bothers me the most about this is saying I don't run Windows, or MacOS, or Linux, and then I just get the <blink> <blink> response, and that's it.
I know two kids interested at least to some extent about ham radio, both who are learning and understand open source culture, who were not exactly impressed with some of the closed source programs they've seen--and wanted to improve on.
But this is changing, and is yet another reason to get more younger people involved in ham radio in general.
