[amsat-bb] Virtual Audio Cable recommendations

I introduced much of amateur radio to VAC when I adopted it for use to
PowerSDR as the cable free connection to third party software years ago.

This has been good for the author, Muzychenko, who refuses to acknowledge
my role, probably in fear of me demanding a percentage (he doesn't know me
and isn't a ham). It has been good for Flex and good for many amateur radio
software applications.

I am no fan of Muzychenko personally,  but he's a brilliant programmer and
this is "the best of the class". He's got a near monopoly, but must
restrict the price to alleviate pressure from piracy. He's grumpy, and this
is completely understandable. When he gets too grumpy, he stops development
for a few months.  But for years, he keeps coming back and making it better.

I thank him, even if he doesn't thank me. Me: IDC. I'm just glad he's
there. Flex included a licensed version that we worked on in PowerSDR. Flex
uses it in DAX for SmartSDR under license.
