Hello, dear listener! Welcome to Episode #109 of Linux in the Ham Shack. This episode is being released a bit early because there is time sensitive material included, and we wanted to make sure it was available to everyone before the ARRL Field Day weekend, June 22-23, 2013.
Also included along with our thoughts on Field Day are our thoughts on Electronic Design Automation, Manjaro Linux and some introspection and extrospection on the art of podcasting. We would like to warn everyone in advance that this episode of LHS may include language that some listeners might find objectionable or not suitable for young children. We don't plan on making this a habit, but due to the strong feelings involved and the importance of the topic being discussed, we did not feel censorship was appropriate.
We hope you enjoy this installment and look forward to your continued listenership. Also, don't forget to check out the Contests page for info on how you can still win a Beaglebone Black!

- 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:
- 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.
- Sign up for the LHS mailing list.
- Sign up for the MAGNetcon mailing list.
- Thanks to Dave from Gamma Leonis for the theme music.
When I attended Maplecon I recorded at conversation I had with Yimin and Fred, VE3FAL, of Youkits. I have turned that recording into the first VA3STL podcast. I am making it only available here for the time being. If I make any more audio podcasts I will think about putting them on iTunes. Please click on the link that follows.
As the podcast is something new to me and an experiment, I would appreciate any feedback via a comment, or direct e-mail.
Jeff, KE9V, has recently released a podcast called Cornbread Road. It is quite a different type of amateur radio podcast. It is not a commentary or discussion of amateur radio, it is a story with amateur radio involved in it. The production quality is high and I have found the story captivating. Jeff tells me the next episode, number 6, is out tomorrow (Sunday 1st Aug.). If you have not already sampled Cornbread Road give it a try, I recommend it.
