Worth area: we're trying to build out a Winlink network for last mile communications via a VHF packet network in Dallas county, for the local RACES group. Anyone in the region that has worked on this sort of project, please get in touch with Richard and share your experiences. Previous attempts here have not succeeded due to lack of participation. 21:13 Song "Guitar Rag" by Jag from the album "Cyprus Grove Blues" 22:23 Buzzword ITU Phonetics. A good article is Voice Communications - ITU Phonetics, Why? by D. W. Thorne, K6SOJ. (The link is to a PDF article.) 34:26 Song "Come Out Baby" by Chris Juergenson from the album "Big Bad Sun". 36:27 Topic Linux in the ham shack. Linux is free; free of charge and free to modify. Advantages: free, stable, runs well on older equipment, and is generally very easy to install. Richard discusses distributions, repositories, and installing ham radio programs. Popular distributions are Debian, Ubuntu, and Kubuntu. (Your faithful editor likes Linux Mint, another Debian-based distribution. -Ed.) Most of the popular distributions offer so-called "live" CDs that allow you to boot the CD to try Linux without modifying your hard disk. If you wish, you can then install Linux on your hard disk from the live CD and even set things up to "dual boot" either Windows or Linux. 52:07 Ham radio applications: there are probably a half-dozen programs for digital modes like PSK, several DX cluster clients, logging programs, MUF calculators, Morse code trainers, satellite orbit prediction, slow scan TV, and more. 1:02:38 Another good Linux resource is the Linux Reality podcast by Chess Griffin. It starts from the basics and gradually progresses to more advanced topics. Give it a listen. (It's no longer in production, but all the episodes are still available, as is a DVD of all the episodes. -Ed.) 1:07:12 Song "Another Time" by Barbara Leoni from the album "Human Needs". 1:09:33 Conclusion Email Richard at email@example.com Twitter: twitter.com/kb5jbv Opening theme music is "Give It All Away", by midliFeCrisis, from the album "Live from the Loft" available at http://www.podsafeaudio.com Closing theme music is "We Gotta Go" by David Henderson at Podsafe Audio.
