Thanks a MILLION, Tom.
I did as you said and created a directory under c:\Program Files\Hrit Radio 
called "\rev4" and copied the files std_Aerospace.ihx and std_2rxhb_2tx.rfb 
into it (I guess I could have moved them also).  Everything fired up and and 
seemed to be working.  I'll know when I connect the dish antenna later today 
(hopefully).  Thanks again!
(FYI...I added the above because it took me a moment to figure out what you 
meant so I figured I'd put it in painful detail.)
Best regards,
- Mike
