   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.
