Yes, but without continual updates, it will become less useful.  If a
contest changes rules, then CT may become less useful for that
particular event.  Right now it has a lack of radio support for the
FT-450 and FT-950 which have a new Kenwood like CAT command structure.

I would like to see CT development continue.  It works well in FreeDOS
and even in Dosemu on Linux (set the hog threshhold high enough and the
sent CW is as good as from DOS, however I had no luck with rig control).
