It seems that the fldigi in the ubuntu repositories is too old.  I just grabbed
the most current source code and will build it Sunday night.  I am about to turn
in for the night.

My own 27 foot sloop is part of the reason I am interested in pskmail.  I am
also interested in it for emergency communications.  At the moment I am out of
work, so I have to do this on the cheap!

My main radio is an SGC-2020.  I use it mobile and in the  boat.  My hope is to
find something cheap and stable and if I can control it from one of my BSD or
Linux boxes for frequency changes based on time of day that would be great.  I
am probably going to sell off some other stuff to finance a dedicated pskmail
server rig.

Thanks so much for all your help!
