Thanks for all you've done.  I had the pleasure of spending a weekend with
you and Tom coding up some BPSK modules back in 2006, and it was fun then
and it still is.  You've made learning and using software radio fun, and
I'll always remember that.  All the best!


Congrats, you really are the best man for the job.
