 Hey Bill and all,

I have version 4.1, I believe it's build 1895 (it's on another computer), and it's very plainly labeled as a Beta. I presumed in deciding to download it that there could be some issue. 

Here, however, there have been none - at all. It opens, runs (including Google Earth), does everything smoothly and without even the slightest problem.

As mentioned, I'm running it on an Acer Aspire One Netbook, which has an Atom processor and XP home edition. 

73 to all,

More importantly, it sometimes becomes non-responsive when I click on TX, and the radio stays on transmit until I close the program.  Also, sometimes the frequencies get mixed up.
