Because I don't know how. So I released the source code years
ago with the hope that someone more talented than I in something
other than QBasic could do it.

The closest attempt has been APRS-SCS, but after years of effort
by John, KB2SCS he reports only a few users and has pretty much
back-burnered it because of the issues with maps...
The XASTIR group also tries to get mosst of it implemented, but
then you have to run Linux to use it.
I think that pretty much summs it up. I keep crying over spilt
milk hoping to keep as many of the original concepts alive until
a fresh author comes up that has a few years of his spare time
that wants to tackle it.
