Most recent amateur radio transceivers allow external control of their
functions through a computer interface. Unfortunately, control commands are
not always consistent across a manufacturer's product line and each
manufacturer's product line differs greatly from its competitors.
This library addresses that issue by providing a standardised programming
interface that applications can talk to and translating that into the
appropriate commands required by the radio in use.
This package provides the Python bindings of the library.
