[aprssig] Pic-E question

   Well, I'm not far behind you.  I won one at the Dayton Packetbash the 
year it first came out.  Excited, I built it in my motorhome that evening, 
hastily made an interface cable for an Icom HT, and heard it send a single 
packet.  I then put it back in the box, thinking I'd find an inexpensive 
xtal rig to mate with it for a tracker.  It's still sitting in that box...
   Last year at Dayton, I found an affordable Motorola Encore engine and 
active antenna, and this spring thanks to this list, I picked up a pair of 
Motorola HT600's.  So maybe before another year goes by, I'll have a 
working tracker!  But the garage is a mess, and I've got to clear enough 
space to build a workbench first...

If I remember correctly, I programmed it that first evening with a DOS 
program running under DOSEMU on a Linux-based laptop.  I don't run windows 
for any reason...
