This Software is DOS software that works well under OS/2. Don't give up on this stuff. Some of it is quite good and OS/2 is a better DOS than DOS! Except, that you can not print formattet fonts to your OS/2-printer, if you need it.

Windows 3.x (WinOS/2)

OS/2 supports the Windows 16 bit software and multitasks it better than Windows itself!

Windows 9x/ME/NT/2000/XP (Odin)

Yes, you can run Windows 32 bit programs on OS/2 and eComStation machines! Go to the Odin HAM radio website, if you wish to use Windows 32 bit HAM software.
