  • Hello Russ, et al. I am a listener of the podcast and I am working through the LHS library. Currently I am on episode 82 (working my way from the first to the most recent). I have learned a lot through the podcast but I still have a lot to learn. Keep up the good work.
  • I am slowly shedding Windows but I still own an Apple Macbook which is my main computer. Maybe my question has been answered before but I have not found it yet.  Here it is: I am relatively new to Linux and I am running an AMD 64 bit machine with  the newest version of Linux Mint Debian in my ham shack. I have downloaded FLDIGI that I found in the repository and I am attempting to update to 3.21.82. I have downloaded the file from the FLDIGI website and have tried through the command line to use the apt-get install update file but I keep getting errors. How do I update FLDIGI? How do I add the repositories under LMDE to automatically look for updates for FLDIGI and all the associated FL programs (FLRIG, FLLOG,  FLMSG…) Thanks, Chuck Chivers, VE3VSA.

  • Comment on Episode #111 from Dan (AF7O)
  • Back in episode 111 y’all introduced me to #!, which I have now used to replace XP on my older shack laptop.  I’m documenting some of my misadventures at my No Sked Required blog (see address above) as I try to navigate hamlib, configure CQRLog and FLDigi, and try to end up with working WINE instead of sour grapes.  73–Dan, AF7O.

  • Comment on Episode #124 from Rob Branch-Dasch
  • Thanks for the LessXmorE track – brilliant!
  • I’ve heard the same about some clubs being “cliquey,” but I think a lot of that may be due to two things:  first, there are a number of experienced hams who may feel that newer hams have it too easy with modern radios and licensing requirements, so look down their noses.  That’s a minority, but a very vocal and sometimes obnoxious one. Second, there’s a learning curve with the terms and technology.  To be fair, some newbies may feel like club members are talking over their heads deliberately when that’s not the case.  It’s like walking into a room filled with intellectuals speaking in a foreign language.  So even when clubs try to be welcoming they may still have little for newcomers.  Look in any copy of ARRL’s magazine – what’s there for the fresh faced new ham?  Usually just about nothing.  It’s a shame that clubs (and the QST magazine) don’t regularly have chapters and features specifically for new hams.  Linux In The Ham Shack is cool, but how about Newbie In The Ham Shack??  Now we’re talking!
  • E-mail from Gene Anderson (KC9SFO, BX8AAD)
  • Russ, I enjoyed meeting you at last year’s Dayton Hamvention.  Since then I have been gradually listening to more and more of your podcasts.  Today I tried to download Episode #031, but I seemed to not have any success.  Neither could I listen to a live stream of the episode via the web-page.  Is there some sort of problem with the server?  I will try again later.  I’m downloading using wget and the following link:  http://lhspodcast.info/podpress_trac/web/651/1/lhs031.ogg.  OK, thanks again for your fine show.   It may take a couple of years, but I hope to eventually be all caught up.  73, Gene Anderson.
