    Yes I renewed over the web also and it was very easy. No rig right now but I am thinking of getting a QRP kit. I installed the cw program to relearn code. Want to get my speed back up above 5 wpm at least.

    Yes good to see other HAMs. I've been a ham since 95, linux user since 12/07. Anyone found a LINUX EchoLink solution?

    Re: Ham Radio Op Ubuntuers

    Hi all
    Been a Amateur radio operator for a few years and have recently started using Ubuntu only a couple months ago. so far it is the smoothest installing Linux distro yet. I have played with the Ham software for Ubuntu and it is quite usable. I have to admit that HRD (Ham Radio Deluxe) is one of the best software packages I have ever used so it makes me a little stuck with windows XP with that respect.

    The newest addition to my computer world is the Asus eeepc with the xandros os distro. There is no ham radio software available for this system yet. Hopefully soon there will be as it seem the perfect match for the FT-817. I have tried the Xubuntu installation on it but had some issues that made me go back to the original os in advanced mode... After a bit of time and playing eventually it should make a fine portable radio PC for logging and PSK ops.

    NS8N here (vanity, chosen for the weight on CW). Been hamming it up since 1999.

    Sordello,

    I saw you're an eepc owner. You can change the OS to ubuntu on an eeepc and there is a specific ubuntu flavour for it on eeeuser I think.

    I run a beacon monitoring site and use Faros for that and would love to switch to an eee and do it under linux but there doesn't seem to be a native app for it.

    Other than that I'm trying to make the switch from HRD and it's hard as theres no comparable app in linux

    Sounds like you're never more than a few feet away from a radio ham!

    Re: Ham Radio Op Ubuntuers

    Good idea OM.I am new to Ubuntu and am amazed at its useability and user friendliness.Also amazed at the ammount of info and applications available on my computer ready to be enabled and on line.
    I would love to be able to thank the gentleman personally who devised the system,if anyone knows his e mail address.
    Also a great big thank you to the staff at Canonical on the Isle of Man from were I downloaded my copy of Ubuntu 7.10.
    I wish I had discovered it many years ago,would have saved me a lot of headaches(and money).
    I absolutly love it.
    THANK YOU also to Linux Format magazine that I have also just discovered.
    Getting bsck to ham radio I have been licenced since 1984 mainly cw.and prior to that I was g6hzl.
    cheers and 73 Barrie g4yjs.
    In England thanks for the suggestion.
