    Ubuntu just gets better and better Barrie and has so much for the ham already as you're finding out.
    I've just install a VOACap for linux that is just great.

    If there was a beacon monitoring programme like Faros then that'd one more for me and one less for XP then it's just the issue over HRD and what to replace it with.

    Another thing, welcome back to ham radio.

    Perhaps we need some kind of google map with the ham radio ubuntu users on it. Having said that it probably already exists
    g7kse.co.uk

    Re: Ham Radio Op Ubuntuers

    ke5tpy here. I'm a relatively new ham, got my Tech and General less than a month ago, and got my first rig (Icom ic-t2h - budgeting apartment dweller) just yesterday. I plan to play on 2m for a while and then maybe ask Santa for a HF I found this thread while searching for some info on setting up echolinux. The documentation is sparse to say the least, and I'm rather at a loss. If I could get that working it would help make up for my lack of a radio, as my understanding is the only IRLP repeater in my area (New Orleans, LA) is UHF and mine is but a mere single-bander 2m. Good to see such a great showing of hams using Ubuntu! The Louisiana LoCo will be doing a presentation at the NE Louisiana Hamfest this month and will be promoting/discussing/informing about ham-related software and Ubuntu. Ability to use Echolink is high on the list of compelling reasons to be able to switch, imho, and I'm hoping to be able to contribute in that regard.

    I spend a lot of my time on my Yaesu FT-60R HT on the local repeaters chewing it up or helping people. I occasionally play on 40M too.

    Would appreciate being pointed in the right direction.

    There are two programs that I know of that are for Windows but work in 7.10.
    They are CwGet and CwType. CwGet works with your PC's sound card. Just run an external speaker plug from the jack on the rig to your sound card. It types the CW on your screen. CwType transmits your keyboard input to the transceiver. I believe you need an interface card for that but read the doc to be sure.

    You'll need Wine installed. Both programs installed in 7.10 but not in my fresh install of 8.04. They may carry over with an upgrade.

    I'm N9YYO, but my rig died a few years back so I have not been on air in awhile.

    KI8JQ here. Just got Ubuntu 8.04 up and running on my Eee and I'm hoping to be able to use it with my FT-817 and FT-897 for remote operations.
