In this fortnight's episode of Linux in the Ham Shack, Pete (VE2XPL), returns to the land of the living. Your intrepid hosts discuss explosions in the sky, a "holiday" for ham radio operators, Linux vulnerabilities, caipirinhas, and ask the vital question: What is Allstar Link and does anyone use it? All that and more in this action-packed installment of LHS. Thanks for watching, and as always...
A lot of interest has been focused on contest logging of late. We've had several comments and questions on the topic. With the recent passage of Field Day and Hamvention, many hams wanted to know what options there were for Linux. As it happens, YFKTest has been on our radar for some time. In order to get the full scoop, we invited Bob, W9YA, the current lead developer of YFKTest to come on the program and let us know what's going on with YFKTest, what Russ has been doing wrong with it, and where it's headed in the future.
It turns out that while simple, YFKTest is a competent and fully featured contest logger for many different contests. It works for CW and SSB logging, has rig control built in, and in the future may support network capable logging. There are many more features too numerous to name here. So sit back and let W9YA give you all the ins and outs. And stay tuned to the end of the show where our intrepid hosts tackle feedback from you, the listener. Best of luck in all your upcoming radio ventures.
