MMANA - is pretty good and easy to use - lots of templates and easy to create stacks - vary sizes optimise....just good all round programme - There are more complex software offerings and MMANA does have a pro version but for a free 'suss out' its pretty good.

Download from http://hamsoft.ca/pages/mmana-gal.php

Same chap has also produced a very good Multi Mode decoder MMVARI -
