Linux in the Ham Shack

In some ways, I'm surprised that most ham radio operators aren't running Linux already. Linux & amateur radio just seem to go together to me, but yeah, it seems that most hams run Windows and most ham radio applications are Windows based.

I found a good site full of podcasts on using Linux for ham radio applications: Linux in the Ham Shack.

Some of them are pretty basic, and it was tough for me, an experienced linux user to sit through the first few, but they got pretty good! I found a new Linux ham radio application that I'm going to try called fldigi thanks to those guys.
