LHS Episode #003

Richard and I had a lot going on in our lives over the past two weeks. Most of it had nothing to do with amateur radio or Linux. Luckily we managed to get Episode #003 recorded and as I write this it's about 3:15am. But the podcast is going to be released on time. Please remember to send us that feedback, whether it's by e-mail, comment on the LHS web site or the Black Sparrow Media forums.

In this episode, we discuss downloading and installing amateur radio software from remote repositories using the various commands provided by Debian-based Linux distributions. We also mention a few other kinds of package managers, those used by Red Hat, OpenSuSE, Gentoo and more. And we touch on installing applications from source code, among other juicy tidbits. Enjoy.

LHS Episode #002

Welcome to the second episode of Linux in the HAM Shack. In this edition, we respond to listener feedback from the introductory episode. Everyone has been very positive and encouraging, and we've been looking forward to getting the second podcast done.

We take a fairly in-depth look at Linux distributions that will get you up and running with ham radio applications and rig control quickly and easily. From Debian to Digipup and other ham-radio-based distributions in between, we look at methods of installation, software repositories and desktop environments.

Thanks for listening, and please remember that feedback. We read every word!

Richard and I will be heading into the studio to record Episode #002 either tomorrow or Wednesday night. So now is the time to provide us with any additional feedback. If you have a comment about what we've already done or want to let us know how you feel, please post something here or at the Forums on Black Sparrow Media. We appreciate all feedback. And besides, it's an easy way to get your name, your call sign and your thoughts "up in lights," as the saying goes. Thanks for listening and for participating.
