I haven't used the specific software under linux/wine but I have had
excellent luck using the commands listed in this reference:
http://www.radiohound.com/command.htm and python's serial libraries as
detailed here: http://brainwagon.org/2007/11/03/new-serial-cable-works-scripting-for-the-th-d7a/

I've been considering the idea of writing a python script to parse a
text file of some sort containing the relevant info and program the
radio.  If i get inspired I'll see what I can hack together in the
next few days and post it.
