How's that?  Fldig seems to be stuck with mono receive audio and
will not take one rig on the left channel with a second one of
the right channel as is don't with all the other SO2R software.

The mono audio also screws up the ability to "listen to the pile-up"
with dual receiver radios (e.g,, FT-1000, FT-2000. FT-5000, K3, etc.).

  ... and to DXLab Suite with the same single receiver limitation.

Unfortunately, the lack of a scriptable interface makes it impossible
(or unlikely) that any Mac programmer will interface fldigi to Don's
MacLogger DX or Chen's uH Router for rig control.
