Hi Tim

Thanks for information.

I obtained the driver, extracted the firmware to lib/firmware and tried to 
scan.
I cannot get a lock on anything.

dmesg shows it is loading the firmware but nothing more:

[  192.596627] xc2028 1-0061: Loading 3 firmware images from xc3028-v27.fw, 
type: DViCO DualDig4/Nano2 (Australia), ver 2.7
[  192.796658] xc2028 1-0061: Loading firmware for type=BASE F8MHZ (3), id 
0000000000000000.
