  • CommCat 4.0 Released

    Iím pleased to report that CommCat 4.0 is now ready for download. As always, this update is free. Iíll be updating the various CommCat and MyQSX sites over the next few days to reflect this version. Here is what is new:
    1. New installation program that is compliant with Vista and Windows 7.
    2. New Help system that provides a new look and expanded capabilities.
    3. PSK module (MMVARI) so you can operate PSK from within CommCat.
    4. Several radios and a rotor have been added to the supported devices.
    5. A number of pesky dratted bugs have been fixed.
    After youíve installed 4.0, all CommCat data files will be found in My Documents\COMMSOFT\CommCat. The new installation program will 1) guide you through the process of moving the existing files to their new home, 2) uninstalling the old CommCat version, and 3) installing 4.0. This 3-step process is only required the first time you upgrade to 4.0. After youíve updated to 4.0, the installer will simply install new versions as they become available.

    Because important data files will be moved, be sure to back up your log to a safe place before starting. Also, exit CommCat before starting the installation.

    Iíve also updated the PDF version of the manual which is suitable for printing. The manual is 375 pages long. Click here to see the new manual.

    Thanks to all who have helped with the testing of 4.0, especially Ange, W8ERN, and Chuck, N6OJ.
