    * PSK Reporter: Performs reporting in background instead of hanging the caller of the PskReporter class. (PR #214)

Hi Richard,

There's currently an open bug due to some stuff from Codec2 that hasn't made it to an official release: https://github.com/drowe67/freedv-gui/issues/255. I plan on releasing 1.8.1 as soon as that bug is resolved.

Thanks,

-Mooneer K6AQ
