Flrig v1.3.29 now available

The hard-working development team led by W1HKJ have announced the release of Flrig v1.3.29. Flrig is a transceiver control program designed to be used either stand alone or as an adjunct to Fldigi.

This version of Flrig is a maintenance release with a variety of bug fixes and several new features. Full details are available in the ReadMe file available for download and below this announcement.

As with all of the FL suite, Flrig continues to support both PowerPC and Intel (i386) processors; with individual downloads available for each architecture and can be downloaded here.
