    Just a thought: The V1 is somewhat limited to red LEDs and a cramped display. You could probably come up with a better design if things aren't in a specific location, like having a verticle signal strength, changing colors, arrows get larger for strength, LCD look for K, Ka, laser, etc. That would be pretty complicated for skinning, but just an idea.

    I sent the authors a pm, we'll see how that goes.

    You want to add a hook in navivoice for V1VD?

    The skinning supports all that and more. I am trying to get some of my more artistically inclined friends to help me out. I did this skin because I am not very creative.... This skin is also pretty hard to see in the daytime, I need something with more contrast.

    I have the same problem. Can't do graphic arts too well. I love red on black, but it's just not good enough on the LCD. I found that yellow on black is much more vivid. Also, browsing through about 1000 winamp skins can be inspiring too.

    porting questions

    does your software library, once the serial port is established to the v1 (i'm presuming through the usbmod3 drivers), just make regular serial calls? i'm considering porting the v1 software for unix-based systems. just trying to get as much info as possible before diving into it. if i did, do you think either you or jim would provide me with frame information in order to parse the data coming in off the serial port? i think i already have the function needed for mute done (switching DTR on/off), just from screwing around with a usb-serial adapter and a multimeter.

    good job on the schematic. are you considering getting PCBs made? would you care if somebody did to make the soldering easier? i noticed the futurelec people offer a pcb production service as well.

    sorry for so many questions. good work, keep it up!!

    I am planning on taking a call up to get some pcbs made up, if there is enough interest.

    There are linux drivers available.

    Didn't see the .lib file, oops. Are all the calls in it POSIX? I'd like the library to be available to Mac users as well. I'm aware from sorting through the freediag project's code that there are linux-specific serial calls that won't port over to the Mac.

    How much interest would you need to get some PCB fabbed? you could mark me down for two
