  • The Dayton Hamvention is coming up very soon! It will be May 17-19, 2013 at the Hara Arena in Dayton, Ohio. Linux in the Ham Shack will be there in the North Hall, booth 131. Hope to see you.
  • The Beaglebone Black has been released. These are the preferred boards of Pignology and Sierra Radio Systems, who use them to create the Hamstack. They are retailing for $45 and are much more powerful than the Raspberry Pi.
