Printed Help File

Occasionally, some users have requested a printed manual. Here is a PDF file which contains the ERGO Help File (as of 2004). It is pretty thorough on the program description and “How to” sections, but does not contain information about radio drivers added since that time. This should only be used in conjunction with the FAQ and Data Manual.
