      Hi Joe,
      Anything else you've kept secret? (I would just love a .deb of a recent
      WSPR) :-)
      Otherwise great news, I've been running older versions of WSJT and WSPR
      compiled by Eddie, G3ZJO, until now.

      Installing your .deb package was a breeze, I took the easy way out:
      downloaded it to my desktop; double-clicked the file and the rest goes
      (almost) automagically. It installs in /WSJT_DEB (maybe a better place
      would be /user/WSJT_DEB)
      I've been running it for several hours on Ubuntu 9.04 in JT65A and B
      plus FSK441 modes without any mishaps, except for this message when exiting:
      Audio streams terminated normally.
      ./wsjt: line 1: 6406 Segmentation fault LD_LIBRARY_PATH=./lib
      python -O wsjt.py

      I've also created a small script along the lines of:
      cd /WSJT_DEB
      made it executable, and calling it from a shortcut on my desktop (you
      can even make it display the traditional wsjt icon) - normally I don't
      care about the terminal messages!

      Please, please do make these .deb packages in the future for your
      programs, I shall be more than happy to test WSJT and WSPR on the
      current versions of Ubuntu and whatever alfas or betas that might be
      available at the time.
