New version of WinDV v1.5.5

Earlier in the week I noticed that there was a new version of the WinDV software that I use in conjunction with the DVAP, version 1.5.5. I downloaded it then but it wasn’t until this morning when I was doing some household chores and garden work that I had a chance to try it out. I hooked the DVAP up to REF001C and had a nice QSO with Brian, ZL1HN. During the QSO with Brian he mentioned getting a Raspberry Pi working with a DVAP which sounded an interesting project. Oh dear, I can see me getting a Pi at this rate…. I had another interesting chat with Clive 2W0CLJ who was doing good stuff with one of the DVRPTR boards and an FT7800.
