Hi Jim,

No, it wasn't classified.  Of course, not all secrets were revealed either !

However, the major design information was all given.  IMHO, the design
is far superior to anything I have seen or heard of.  There are very very
solid RF/IF sections in the front end, done in the best hardware design
around.  THEN you go to the DSP section.  So the radio isn't by any means
an empty box filled with software.  Its solid.  And of course, once you do
into the DSP processors, then its just wild.
