Interesting to find some ham radio Puppy users.

There's a real shortage of ham radio software for Linux. Has anyone tried using Wine & WIndows based software?

Contest loggers, rig control software, propagation software etc. There's a lot of shareware based programmes in Windows, but very little on Linux.

Iang, aka G4FSU


Actually, I have vx-5 commander working in wine on Debian, but read only. Haven't figured out how to write back to the device. Some sort of serial port usb cable issue.

Also got my icom pcr-100 working in Ubuntu/wine.

So it is possible.

Would use Linux equivalents if they were out there!

yes, it would be great if some HAM's could package their progs for puppy.
I think that the HAM programmers learnt the win coding thing, and aren't convinced (learning curve) about puppy


3/ When I was a lot younger, geeks WERE radio hams, and didn't have PCs
It's funny how geeks became specialised, isn't it?
ham geeks, windoze geeks, windoze & ham geeks, & linux/puppy geeks
It seems a bit late for the addition of category linux/puppy &ham geeks,
isn't it?
Put the skates on lads, there's some catching up to do - and if Microsh*t has their way we'll have no internet to use, so ham will become the new backbone for 'free' communication

Subject description: How to drive USB port?
 

I have fldigi on a USB memory stick up and running on my eeePC. I want to control my ICOM 703 using a RigExpert Tiny, which uses an FTDI chip to interface between USB and the ICOM CI-V interface.

Under Puppy, the USB drivers are /dev/usb/ttyUSB0 and /dev/usb/ttyUSB1.

I have been editing the RigCAT .xml file for the 703 without success. (After editing, I place it in "root" with the name ".fldigi.xml")

Other than changing the name of the driver in the XML file, what else should I be doing? Obviously, the XML files were written under the assumption the interface would be a TTY Com port. Can I just change a few more lines of XML, or is it a big deal?

I believe you're supposed to change the name to 'rig.xml'. Also, it should go into the /root/.fldigi directory.

There was a derivative of puppy called "DigiPup" based upon 2.16. I have a copy that is currently gathering dust. I am wondering if it would be possible to interface my pc with my ICOM IC-28 using the sound card? However, I supposed I would have to try to install Fldigi and Geoid onto Puppy 3.01 (I am using derivative ChurchPup). I suppose I can check the grafpup site to see if there is either a pup or pet file. I will check and let everyone know.

Yes, I know, I have a California call and I live in Washington, blame the Navy. However, I don't plan to change it either.



Five minutes later:


You can find listings for fldigi, geoid, and logbook at:

http://www.w1hkj.com/flpuppy.html

They were all pet files. However, they don't appear to be there anymore. Will keep looking.

I've got a few files here

http://www.puppylinux.ca/puppyfiles/custom

Look under EMCpup

Hope there is a use as I want to keep the older stuff.
Best,
Eric

EDIT: Does anyone know how to contact EMCpup's maker? I would like to post a link to his site on my pages at puppylinux.ca

pm me if you have a contact for EMCpup.

I installed the pet files from the EMCpup site and they worked beautifully. I now have ChurchPup 3.01 with Amateur Radio digital mode capability. How cool is that?

If you guys are interested I could posts the pets for 3 satellite trackers from the new Cloudy Skies Live CD. They are Predict, Mtrack and Gsat. There might already be a pet of one of these floating around Puppy somewhere. (Must be getting old.)

That could be useful. I may someday try my hand at either satelite or EME. In either case, I'd likely stick with two meters.

Not a problem. I just wish I could find a way to hook up my pc to my Icom IC-28H. I know that I can do it with my Alinco DJ-S41 using a couple of double male cables (though the size on the microphone input for the alinco needs to be smaller than the other three, 325mW radio, you get what you pay for). Either way, I plan to use my sound card to connect my computer to the radio.

Any thoughts?

Nope, Sorry - just watch out for floating dc power - tantulum capacitor isolate i/ps, to be safe

I found loadsa stuff - /frequency mods /satnav stuff /squelch reducers

2 satellite trackers for Puppy Linux 3.01
Download from...
http://myfreefilehosting.com/f/704a6ddf53_1.51MB

Mtrack
Home page: http://freshmeat.net/projects/mtrack/

MTrack is a satellite tracking program. It was written many years ago (about 1990/91) and originally ran under DOS and supported the Hercules monochrome graphic card. It was ported to use Motif under Linux in 1994, and was later modified to use GTK in 1999.

Entry is added to your Personal menu.

2nd satellite tracker is Predict/gSat
Home page: http://www.qsl.net/kd2bd/predict.html
When installed two icons are added to your personal menu.

PREDICT is an open-source, multi-user satellite tracking and orbital prediction program written under the Linux operating system.
GSAT is a realtime satellite tracking client program to KD2BD's Predict.
gSat basically provides a GUI for Predict.
Quick Start for gSat...
MUST add the following line to the end of /etc/services for gPredict to work...

predict 1210/udp

Then reboot.
After you start gSat, bring the window to the front which has the earth.
Click on CONNECT. When the new small window opens click on CONNECT again.

No additional files or libs are required. To get accurate positions of the satellites, you will need to update the 'TLEs' for both mtrack and Predict.
