I am getting worried about myself, I am spending far too much time and paying far too much attention to little white toys.
I watch YouTube videos about the mods, watch them go for a song on Ebay, I even downloaded the Xandros Linux, just to feel nearer to them. Well what do you know, the Xandros is the only paid for Linux I have ever tried, (it is the 30 day trial version), it is also the only Linux I have installed for several years that does not work.
Look I do not want a little Computer with a screen resolution that we left behind with DOS and golly I have enough trouble with my fat fingers on a full size keyboard.
What I did want was WSPR working on a grown up Computer under Linux so I followed OH2GQC instructions for compiling the source. Whilst I was at it I installed a new Ubuntu Distro. OH2GQC was pleased when his WSPR worked, so was I, overjoyed, head ache, but overjoyed, as Kari says “that’s what Ham Radio is all about”.
Here is a nice big screen grab, Right click and select View Image to see it all.
I am no Linux expert I learned some more Linux during this exercise.
