I am new to amateur radio; could anyone explain what kind of program
would be used to control the radio? I can understand a logging program.
But what other uses could the software interface be used for? I am
considering purchasing a Paragon; but I am not sure if the software interface
is a plus or just something that would never be used. Thanks for your help.
