Re: Looking for Packet Radio Software
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
Hello John,Depending on your needs, there is a lot of good packet software out there for Linux (a previous post to the linux.au site is great). With that said, there isn't a native Outlook for Packet application out there like Outpost. A buddy of mine did get that working under Wine after a bit of work. If you're interested in finding out what he did to get it working, I can get you in touch with him. For me, I use a combination of:
Packet TNC - HF: Soundmodem software TNC in KISS mode - VHF: Kenwood D710 Applications: - HF: fldigi / WSJT (I'm also working on setting up pskmail - VHF packet: LinpacI have a bit of a hacky Journal following all this that I hope to clean up. It might be helpful to you..

Hi, all... I just joined the mailing list. I have looked through a lot of the archives and not found the information I am looking for, so I will try here. I have a computer running Ubuntu 10.04 and would like to use it for packet radio. I have tried Airmail and Outpost Packet Manager, both in Wine, but neither works well. Airmail works for one interchange then apparently messes up the the TNC (a KPC3), so that I have to reset the TNC to use it again on Windows. Outpost PM seems to communicate with the TNC OK, in the serial terminal, but never shows outgoing or incoming characters in the terminal window, and does not properly communicate with the TNC when trying to send/receive from the packet manager. Can anyone help me with the proper setup for Airmail or Outpost PM, or suggest other terminal software for packet operation with a KPC3 TNC? Thanks in advance.. 73 de John, KC5LAA -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-hams" in the body of a message to majordomo@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
