On a CD here on my desk...
It all started when we figured it would be nice to have the modem part
included in the pskmail client. Franz-Josef did a very nice job of
porting the necessary classes to java, he also built a simple user
interface for testing. I have attached an image of that, nothing much to
see there but it just shows that it does run on java and it works.

At a later stage we decided not to include it anyway as we would then
not benefit from all the hard work done by the fldigi group. But, it
would make a very nice addition to an android phone. With this mornings
announcement from Nokia I will immediately ditch my phone and get an
android device so I would like to see this there as well.
