yes but remember no upgrades etc its better to close security bugs in 
the firewall between the windows machine and the net. not sure if this 
stability had been so high if i was using the machine for other things.

But i had one or two times the TNC on the TM-D700 stopped. Overkill to 
use the tm-d700 but as i'm using the radio from work then the main band 
can do some work when i'm not using the UHF hehe

Running UI-View as a DIGI and IGATE. But now we got some snow :o( so the 
planed digi is postponed yet again.

Have found out that the upgrade on windows doesn't use the same drivers 
on the hardware.
Strange... But a stable windows is stable... but when its start acting 
veird then its no hope and i think its faster to reinstall a Ghost image 
than to try to fix drivers etc.

 think i'm going to ask the Elcom dudes if they can implement something 
like this in the DIGI.
Its possible to enter 4 different DIGI comments and with 4 different 
paths. So maybe a beacon with another symbol could be possible.

Offtopic: hows the status on TM-D700? Here in Norway its not possible to 
get one due to some new "eu" rules. They are allowed to sell what they 
had in the shop in 2006.Probably have to buy from US but even with taxes 
and transport its cheaper that way.
