    New Amateur Radio repeater app for Linux now available

    Greetings all,

    Recently I was very surprised that there were zero ham radio repeater apps for Ubuntu/linux. Especially since there are going to be several Linux based phones, and there already are a couple repeaterbook-type apps for ios/Android. I have been writing howtos on some of the steps to build this at https://howtotrainyourrobot.com/

    Just this weekend I uploaded the first version of Repeater-START.
    This not only is open source software for Ubuntu/Linux, the repeater listing is freely usable without a recurring fee or restriction to redistribute.

    Like Repeaterbook on Android, this new app shows nearby repeaters and distance. It also shows them on a map! Also, for certain rtlsdr devices that are set up to your computer, it should let you click play in the corner and listen in on the frequency to see how well used that repeater is.
    Hope this is useful for any other Ham radio folks here.

    Have a great week,
    Luke

    Would any of these applications be relevant to you?

    Not really, I don't have a radio that interfaces for HF radio and packet/winlink stuff. Mostly I thought there should be a repeater app for Linux and Librem phone and built this along with a repeater listing.
