I'll test chirp on Win 10 this evening and let you know what I come up with.


In re the win 7 to win 10 upgrade; reading the documentation, it has a
"revert" function with it so that you if you upgrade "properly" you can
revert back to whatever you came from.

As many of you are likely aware, Microsoft is taking the unusual step (for
them) of providing a FREE upgrade from Windows 7sp1 or Win8.1 computers (for
consumers anyway) to Win10.  Indeed, by now you may have already seen a new
icon show-up in the lower right corner of your computer encouraging you to
make a "reservation" for this upgrade when it becomes generally available on
July 29.  That free upgrade is only available for a year.  If you haven't
upgraded by then, your out-of-luck unless you wish to pay.  

The rub, of course, is what gets "broken" by this upgrade.  For the average
user, I'm guessing not much.  But us hams tend to have some esoteric
