About this page
Starting point page for amateur radio users using Debian. Refer to DebianHams maintainer material, encourage maintenance participation, but focus on using Debian for amateur radio.
The expectation is that appropriate material from here will get rolled into the Debian Hamradio Handbook, and that is encouraged. However, a wiki is better suited for some types of information.
Please see also:
DebianHams - debian ham radio maintenance starting point
Debian Hamradio Pure Blend - awesome Hamradio pure blend! has link to the 'Handbook'.
hamradio section packages - list of ham radio related packages. see elsewhere in the packaging system for SDR, electronics, etc., as those are not strictly ham radio related
debian-hams mailing list - developer/maintenance mailing list but also the list to use for ham radio user questions
What to contribute to this wiki:
- If you wanted to use Debian for some amateur radio activity, but had to do some research first, share your notes. That will make it faster for others to get up to speed.
- What else?
Note: some of these are logging programs and others are contest loggers.
Supported keyers: All of the above (haven't checked klog, yet) can use cwdaemon. cqrlog also supports winkeyer and k3ng.
Some of these have really impressive features and can inter-operate with other applications such as fldigi.
competitive CW contest logging
There are great logging programs packaged in Debian. Not all are suited for contest logging. Suitable candidates for contest loggers include:
These appear to be not suited for contest loggers:
Haven't evaluated the following:
TODO: add notes about cwdaemon and some of the unpackaged alternatives. The alternatives can talk to a winkeyer.
