Since the begining of this year, I am writing a new KDE2 application for
using and configurating the PTC-II ( www.scs-ptc.com ). The development is
not completed yet, but I think it is already a useable software.
I would be pleased, if someone take a look and drop me a note about his first
impression. Criticism and hints are important for further development.
The current version is Kptc - 0.1.
There is no RPM yet, but installing from source should not cause any trouble.
Download it here:
Install it as usual :
# tar xfvz kptc-0.1
# cd kptc-0.1
# make install
Additionally, you need QT 2.2 or newer and the KDE2 libs.
By the way: There is still a lot to do. To bring this work on faster, I can
need somekind of help. If you are interested and like to support this
project, please join me. Depending on your interests and skills you can
introduce yourself in one of the following open tasks:
- testing and reporting bugs / wishes
- writing a user manual ( html )
- developing a project home page ( html )
- drawing icons and logos
- developing new features, several things are outstanding ( KDE, C++ )

Yes - You are right, sorry to say. But I still belive that when hams comes to the
point, where they wish function instead of flashy screens, they will find LINUX
good. More and more hams like to set up unantended communication-systems, such as
digipeaters, remoutly transmittersaites etz, and in thoose aplications LINUX is
outstanding. We will put LINUX in our clubs computer, because we will share data
between different applications as voiceBox, packet BBS, APRS e.t.z, AND also do e
LAN between members and the cluvlocation ( a 68 meter high tower!)

This is just an email to find out the activities on this maillist, as Im
new on it.
Im a ham since 30 years ago Im running packet/AX-25 since 10 years ago.
Now I started to learn LINUX/Suse in order to use it together with
amateurradio. The first thing I will try to work with is as an server in
APRS, Automatic Position Reporting System.
So now - Are there any out there working with similar things, and if,

I have been reading a lot about PSK-31 and; I think, digipan for windows.
Is there a linux alternative that has all the features of digipan? One of
the latest issues of QST talks about a kit for PSK-31 on 80 meters, once
again they mention needing the windows software. Is anyone using a linus
alternative, I don't do windows at all, not even a little bit and hate to
start buying windows software this late in the game.
And in the meantime I suggest we put an Cc: to suse-ham-e(a)suse.com when we
answer a mail on the list. Hopfully the list will be a little more active in
that way. It must be because Suse and LINUX is to good to not be active.
