pskmail-1.0.3d is only working with fldigi-3.04xx

fldigi 3.04 contains a new interface for pskmail, and important bug fixes.
You find it at www.w1hkj,com/ateam
As this is alpha code it has not been officially released.

  5) run fldigi 3.0 and make psk31 qso, start pskmail. In pskmail i

the monitor in pskmail reads the fldigi log file. Switch on logging in fldigi
(files->logfile) The twerminal window gets its infirmation fromm the tcp/ip

kill all instances of fldigi and psk_arq.pl
then restart fldigi 3.04
then start pskmail. 
pskmail will automatically start the socket interface.
