Hi Mike,

I don't know if you've tried it out, but, I got a customized copy of 
dosbox running on the RPi3 which works well with the ancient RSS software. 
I rolled this together as a package for the HamVoIP release, to make 
installation and setup simple....This setup works GREAT, even with the 
X9000 RSS software, which is typically one of the worst-case scenarios for 
getting it to work.

I wrote some custom serial port driver code, which is included in this 
release. This custom code allows the RSS software to work nicely with the 
*REAL* FTDI USB-to-rs232 interface cables.

With this package, once you've got the FTDI cable and HamVoIP V1.5
installed on an RPi2 or RPi3, getting setup to program these old radios
takes all of 15 minutes! ...literally!
