Rename the file users.c to users_hwaredriver.c
You must run ./configure to update Makefile afterwords.

Under Windows, rename users.c to wusers_hwaredriver.c
and run configure.exe

Then edit users_hwaredriver.c for the routine
set_hardware_rx_frequency() to contain:

fg.passband_direction = 1;
fft1_direction = fg.passband_direction;

This will swap the direction of the frequency scale.
You may also add whatever functions needed to control
the LO of your SDR1000 so you can control it from the Linrad
frequency setting box.

Oooh! There is a bug in the Windows time routine ms_since_midnight()

Change line 250 which is
return i%(24*3600);
to simply 
return i;

(it could have been return i%(24*3600*1000);

Compiling from source code under Windows is easy. Everything you
need can be downloaded from:
http://www.sm5bsz.com/linuxdsp/linrad.htm

Three files: mingw.zip nasm.zip and lir02-35.zip
(the updates needed for the S-meter and quitting with X 
were described in my previous posting)

I have not yet received any reports on whether 02-37 is
OK so I have not placed it on "Linrad Home Page" yet. I need
to know whether it works correctly with the various users 
routines which have perhaps became polluted by tx stuff.

If you can find the tools to unpack a .bz2 file under
Windows, you can use lir02-37.tbz which contains everything
needed.
