As we enjoy this beautiful fall day, let’s all remember the Veterans. We’re very lucky in this country to have the freedoms we sometimes take for granted like the freedom to gather and enjoy the Amateur Radio hobby. Like the song says “freedom don’t come free”. We have many NARC members who have served in all branches of the military. To them and to all the veterans and the men and women who are serving today THANK YOU!!
Even though those words don’t seem hardly enough, please remember to say them as often as you can, not just today but, every opportunity you have.

Whether you are currently running Linux or interested in switching from Windows or Mac, finding amateur radio related applications that would run in a new operating system can be a challenge. The Red Hat sponsored Fedora Project has posted an interview with Eric “Sparks” Christensen where he shared his experience running amatuer radio tools currently available in the Fedora distribution. The Fedora Documentation Project has also put together an Amateur Radio Guide with descriptions and screenshots of several applications.
If you would like to get involved in adding more amateur radio software to Fedora, you can join their Amateur Radio Special Interest Group (SIG).
