Request for Information–Apps
If you own a smartphone and/or tablet device and use any of the amateur radio related apps designed for these devices, I would like to hear from you. I’m conducting research for an upcoming episode of the Practical Amateur Radio Podcast (PARP) and would like to know what apps you are using, how you use them and how they work for you.
Please contact me via the email address listed on my QRZ page. Thank you!
LHS Show Notes #054
- Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all.
- Bill, KA9WKA, joins the podcast this evening.
- Richard reviews a new ham radio podcast, wAVEGUIDES pODCAST, hAM rADIO…wITH a tWIST!!!, by Pete Landry, VE2XPL.
- We then discuss various podcasts:
- Richard test drives GNOME Shell and Unity after hearing about them on the Going Linux and Mintcast podcasts. It seems Ubuntu 11.04 will ship with Unity as the default desktop manager. He installed GNOME Shell on his eMachines test computer running Ubuntu 10.10. You launch GNOME Shell with command “gnome-shell –replace”. After a reboot, your default desktop manager will return.
- Neither Russ nor Bill have played with either one, but that doesn’t stop us from discussing them at length.
- Russ discusses Android applications for hams:
- Callsign DB
- Ham (Solar/Band conditions and QRZ lookups)
- HamSatDroid satellite tracking
- IRLP Finder
- DX Cluster for Android
- Amateur Radio Call Log
- Ham Radio Apps for your Android
- Richard, KR4EY, writes that Morse code is not dead! And 30m is his favorite band.
- Burt, K1OIK, says Richard looks awful cute with that pink bow in his hair. (We’re still wondering about that one.)
- Contact Richard at [email protected], Russ at [email protected], or both at the same time at [email protected]
- Listen to the live stream every other Tuesday at 8:00pm Central time. Check the LHS web site for dates.
- Leave us a voice mail at 417-200-4811, or record an introduction to the podcast.

LHS Episode #054: Unity Ucks
It’s the holiday season and we had time for one more podcast this year. We want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and a prosperous New Year in 2011. Linux in the Ham Shack has undergone a few changes and weathered a few challenges in the last 2+ years, but we’re still going and expect to be going for a long time to come. We want to thank everyone for their continuing support and continuing listenership. We would not have a podcast without you, and we wouldn’t know what to do if you weren’t there.
So spend time with your families and enjoy all of the wonderful things that life brings at this time of year, and hopefully all the year through. And if you find the time, curl up on the sofa with year headphones next to the roaring fire, crank up LHS and sit back and enjoy our gift of holiday cheer.
