An overview of Linux software for amateur radio operators
Our speaker at this meeting will be Andy (KB1OIQ) Stewart. Andy has been involved with Linux since 1997, and with amateur (ham) radio since 2007. He combined his interests in these two areas by creating “Andy's Ham Radio Linux”, a remastered version of Ubuntu, customized for amateur radio use. The talk will be an overview of the ways in which amateur radio operators use computers, and the Linux software that helps people enjoy the radio hobby. People with Linux backgrounds, as well as amateur radio enthusiasts, should find this talk informative.
Andy (KB1OIQ) Stewart has founded two Linux user groups, and is currently the President of the Police Amateur Radio Team (PART) in Westford, MA. He holds an Extra class amateur radio license. By day, Andy is a digital logic verification engineer. By night, he can often be found on the airwaves, or playing with electronics, or programming Arduinos for radio related projects.
