I downloaded a copy of this program for my Windows 10 machine, using it in conjunction with my Yaesu FT-7900R and Signalink. I live near the flight path for planes entering and leaving SEATAC airport in Seattle. Your program works great. I'll get around to buying a copy soon. Thanks for posting the link to this. I'm not really an airplane signals hobbyist, but I recommend it to anyone who enjoys decoding signals of the airwaves.
