I have been asked by my local Users Group to set up a Linux machine demonstrating Ham Radio applications for our booth at a major hamfest in our area.
In the past I have used Linux for logging and packet, but I am not now. In looking at the SUSE download section, it appears SUSE has a very good selection of Ham Radio apps. Before committing to a SUSE box I have a few questions:
1. Are the Ham Radio apps in the Personal Version? 2. Will they be reasonably set up upon istallation? 3. Does anyone have Ham Radio apps they like or prefer that are not in the Distro?
My intention is to have the following apps:
Logging for which HamLog should be more than adequate. Packet..not sure which APRS...is there a good GUI version with US maps? PSK31...a nice GUI version to compare with Digipan or WinPSK Sattelite Tracking with a world and region map if possible QRZ CD reader Perhaps a program or two of more technical interest such as antenna or circuit design.
I would appreciate any suggestions, etc to make this task easier for me and a great demo for the hamfest.
