"Calling All Ham Radio/Linux Users
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 14, 2012
I have a LOT of questions about Linux, but the MOST important to me is the distro that has the ham radio proggies in it so I can use it with my Icom 706 MarkII-G.
I do plan to use Digipan, PSK-64, BPSK and J-65 digital modes. I'm running for the present a Dell 2400 with WIN EcksPee I hear that since HRD was taken over, they are having "problems" with the commercial version (6.?)
Now, the question is which distro has the ham software and is easy to install and use. I'm medically retired and my liver puts out too much ammonia an causes me to 'forget' or not understand what I read or hear..
The Dell 2400 has 2 CD's. One is just a 'player' the other is a burner/player/re-burner. They are in the case, but not hooked up, so I will have to download the Linux version on to a 4 gig, thumb drive and install it on a "blank" 120 mb hard drive to be swapped out when ever I want to run WNDBLOW$, which should be very little.
Are there any "suggestions"
Ham Radio & Linux
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 5, 2009
Just attended the national HamFest in Newark, UK. A great big bunch of geeky, technically minded, logic based people who love experimenting with electronics and who make it their life quest to push the boundaries of what's possible... YET.. all software and computer stuff was all windows based (and some cracking signal decoding stuff there was too - stuff the CIA wouldn't even have.) It's such a shame with such a mindset, hardly anybody even knows of the existence of Linux.. where you can see the workings of your own computer, keep old hardware alive for years and have much more control over your hardware down to the binary level. I'm dumbstruck that the Linux community and the Amateur Radio communities aren't talking to each other. I can only imagine what would be possible with such a partnership. Most radio amateurs my age (I'm not one myself) used to use sinclair spectrums and the like to analyse signals and track satellites and were able to write programs out of magazines and this
Amateur Ham Radio Software
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 19, 2011
I've been reading lately about all the ham radio software that is built into Ubuntu. I've been a ham for 16 years and been using Ubuntu for 4-5 years, but for some reason I've never used the 2 together. Recently I've decided that I want to setup a new packet radio station and I would prefer to do it with Ubuntu over Windows.
My TNC that I have had for a long time is a Kantronics KPC-3 and I used to run the software called Pacterm with it for packer operation. I know that Airmail does about the same thing. Is there software in Ubuntu that does the same thing as Pacterm?
I've just downloaded UI-View32 for use with APRS. I've never connected to APRS before, but I plan to try this soon. Is there any APRS software for Ubuntu?
I've also heard people talking about HRD- Ham Radio Deluxe. I saw some posts about it from last year and those threads are all closed, but I'm wondering if this was ever ported over to Ubuntu or Linux.
Thanks for the help.
Ham Radio & Linux distros.

I need some help in finding a linux distro that contains a lot of Ham Radio digital; logging;and other programs that Hams would find useful. I've been told that Ubuntu/KBuntu/etc was
perfekt,but after going over to the Ubuntu page, it has a lot of detractors in the various distrobutions. NOT a good thing.
I understand that Debian has a great deal of all kinds of software packages, but may not have many Amateur Radio programs and it's kind of tough to learn as a
Now, I'm 65 and have had some major medical problems, one being understanding what I read and comprehending it. Finding someone who KNOWS what they are doing in Linux here, is vertually impossible. They don't even teach it in the Public schools. :-(
I'm not asking for 'charity', but a bit of a hand up.

.wine and Ham Radio 2m Packet software hangs on text
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 8, 2014
In Central CA we have a Ham Radio Sunday Night Packet Radio net on 2m (145.050 MHz.) I have been using Windows XP Pro for my software which is XPWare for Windows. Since the EOL of Windows XP I am trying to switch over to Linux Mint 17 32-bit.
Here is a link to the page where I got the software:
I am trying to get the software to run on Linux Mint 17. I installed the latest version of wine and installed XPWIN. The install went fine. I can even find the /dev/ttyS0 (com 1 port) and can talk to the Kantronics KPC-3 TNC I use.
Here is the problem. When I type into the input window, the text does not show. If I move the mouse, then the text shows and the info is sent to the com port and the TNC responds correctly. Each time I type anything it just hangs until I move the mouse.
I have tried using different fonts but still have the problem. Currently I am using Fixedsys 9 font. I have checked the paths and tried to correct them to the proper locations.

Where to download shareware linux software?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 28, 2005
I am a Windows XP user who is wanting to try Linux. I installed Linspire but then found out I have to subscribe to their service to get even free software. I am now downloading the newest release of Mandrake and will install that but I was wondering where can I download free shareware at? I am basically looking for a free DVD player, MP3 player, word processor (will probably download Open Office) and little games like Bejeweled and stuff. I might want to get a budget program and a nice address book.
Where can I download this stuff?
Software FM Radio reciever that works?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 10, 2013
For my own personal time-shift use, I record a talk show from a local FM Radio station.
My current solution is to take a small table top radio with 2.5mm earpice/headphone jack, connect a cable from that to the mic jack on a Ensonic PCI Sound card in a very old Dell server -- a PE 350, Pizza box, 1GHZ processor and 1 GB of memory.
I use arecord and lame to record from the default sound device and then convert the raw recording to mp3 format.
This has been working for years, but as the server and the sound card are getting long in the tooth, I have tried several times converting to a newer server with a PCIe type sound card. I have never been able to get this to work since something breaks with the command line stuff. I can never get the input set properly in the sound cards from CLI utilities.
On top of this is the issue of tuning -- any drift in the station signal doesn't get corrected until I hear the recording later and realize I have one or more bad recordings because
HOWTO: Linux Software Raid using mdadm
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 13, 2007
Recently I went out and bought myself a second hard drive with the purpose of setting myself up a performance raid (raid0). It took me days and a lot of messing about to get sorted, but once I figured out what I was doing I realised that it's actually relatively simple, so I've written this guide to share my experiences I went for raid0, because I'm not too worried about loosing data, but if you wanted to set up a raid 1, raid 5 or any other raid type then a lot of the information here would still apply.
2) 'Fake' raid vs Software raid:
When I bought my motherboard, (The ASRock ConRoeXFire-eSATA2), one of the big selling points was an on board raid, however some research revealed that rather than being a true hardware raid controller, this was in fact more than likely what is know as 'fake' raid. I think wikipedia explains it quite well: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Redunda...ependent_disks
Hybrid RAID implementations have become very popula
