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.
