LHS Episode #023: Teen Radio Journey

yaesu_ft-7800rWelcome to Episode #021 of Linux in the HAM Shack. As always, feedback for the program has been abundant and entertaining. We address several listener questions and comments. We also have new features on the web site. Please check them out after listening to the show. Russ will be at the Ohio Linux Fest and Richard and Jerry from The Practical Amateur Radio Podcast will be in Denton at a hamfest there. Check out the podcast for more information on times and locations.

For the main segment of our program we talk with Paul Shirey of Teen Radio Journey, a podcast chronicling the pursuits of a young man from Illinois on a quest to get his ham radio license. It was a lot of fun to talk with Paul and we're glad to have him on the show. As always, send us feedback on the program and leave us voice comments at (888) 455-0305.

LHS Episode #021: OSCON 2009 Update 2

osconHere is the second and final installment of the special OSCON update for Linux in the HAM Shack. In this episode I examine the second half of my trip to San Jose, California, and the O'Reilly Open Source Convention. I talk about sessions I attended dealing with subjects as diverse as patents and legal issues, processor speed, cloud computing, users as Open Source advocates and, yes, evening programming in Klingon. I also take a trip through The Tech Museum of Innovation, an institution run entirely using Open Source. So sit back and enjoy this special report from OSCON and as always, thanks for being a loyal listener to the program.

Don't forget to leave us voice feedback or questions. We'd love to put you on the air. And we know how ham radio operators often have the gift for gab. So let it out. Don't be shy. Linux in the HAM shack wants YOU.

LHS Episode #020

Linux MintLinux in the HAM Shack #020 has arrived. This one ran a little bit long so it's been cut into two parts. The second part will wind up being the first half of Episode #022. For this show, we brought in a friend of the show to help us with a discussion of Linux Mint and several amateur radio topics. Thanks to Bill, KA9WKA, for sitting in with us. The amateur radio portion of the discussion is being pushed over to the next show, so be on the lookout for that in a couple of weeks. This time we answer feedback, talk with the live participants in the chatroom and give all the ins and outs of Linux Mint on various platforms, from laptops to desktops to netbooks.

Thanks to all of our listeners for downloading the podcast and sending us your comments and other feedback. We hope it's as much fun for you as it is for us. And remember, leave us an audio comment at +1-888-455-0305 and we'll get you on the podcast. And if you want to participate as KA9WKA did, let us know and we'll set you up.
