LXer: This week at LWN: A green light for freesoftware defined radio?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 19, 2007
Published at LXer:
Playing around with radio-frequency transmission and reception used to be restricted to those of us with hardware skills. That has been changing for some years, though, as processors get faster and software techniques advance; now, many radio transmitters and receivers are built with simple (but flexible) hardware. The hard work of generating the signal to be transmitted is done in software. Some wireless network adapters work that way now, as do a number of other devices. There is a well-advanced project - GNU Radio - which enables experimenters to do amazing things with software defined radio (SDR) systems.
"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.
amateur radio packet software HELP
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 2, 2011
so i'm an amateur radio [ham radio] operator. i prefer to do everything in ubuntu and hate having to boot in to windows for anything. sadly, there is but one thing radio related i can't do in ubuntu: packet/pactor radio.
i have installed fbb BUT don't know exactly how to configure it ... if i give it my best guess, i inevitably screw it up [as evident in it won't launch and gives errors relating to the config file]
so i truned to trying linAMC ... i can't launch the message processor options NOR can i initiate a call [start forward session]
can anyone help? for either program or both? i've looked on line but most of what i find is greek to me. i mean i'm okay with the command line but i'm no programmer ... an what they talk about makes no sense to me :s
thanks in advance for any help!

Ubuntu and Ham Radio! DSTAR help needed...
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 31, 2010
I am assuming there are some other amateur radio operators out there using Ubuntu. Is there any Linux based radio programming software for the Icom IC2200 and/or the Icom IC-91AD? I have the windows(xp) software for them and the cables, I was just thinking it would be nice to do it in Linux.... since the DSTAR network is built in Linux.
Morse Code, Ham Radio

Is there a program that I can learn morse code with in 6.06, specifically for communication, and ham radio, and possibly taking a test? If so, lead me into the right direction, please...

These pages are gone.
They have been abused more than once and now there is a team that is trying to usurp them.
Leave it be, they are dead and gone.
They have ceased to be, they have passed on and joined the choir invisible.
They are an ex-wiki
But I am sure they can't and will probably revert them soon.
(To those that added the url's for your countries agencies and were able to edit responsibly, you have the new team to blame. They couldn't just play nice like the rest of us.)
