    trying to listen to the podcast on my windoz xp media desktop but haven’t figured out how to do it. The @ole_grandpa has a bad learning curve on things. Example trying to figure out what software program to use with my IC-821h and xp computer to do packet and other digital modes on vhf and uhf freqs. Lots of fun and games.
