Eeeham Status

Note: This page is now obsolete since I have installed Ubuntu 9.04 desktop edition on the Eeepc. This opens the door to use all ham radio applications available for Ubuntu!

Eeeham dedicated to ham radio applications on the Asus eeepc. The idea is to have a set of Linux ham radio applications built on a host computer and packaged and configured so that they can be run off an SD or USB disk on the eeepc. User data related to the applications shall be stored on the same disk. I think this is a good approach since it will keep the eeepc system disk clean of my experiments.

Predict for the eeepc using Ubuntu host

My first attempt to port Predict to the eeepc using my Ubunutu 7.10 desktop as host did not work out.

It plays well and it sounds good. Tomorrow I will continue with John Heatons version of predict.

eeeham: Hamradio Applications on the eeepc

I have now created a web space on my site dedicated to ham radio applications on the eeepc. You can access it by clicking on eeeham in the subject field of this post. At this point only a WIP, but I will update is as I make progress.
