Ham Operator new to Linux Mint

Post by 2Hobos » Sun Feb 10, 2019 3:59 pm

I am a new Linux Mint user. I am also a Ham radio operator, so I have setup a computer for ham radio operation. I will be using it for normal uses too. I am using Linux Mint as the only operating system on this computer.
So far, I like Linux Mint much more than Windows 10. Wish me luck in getting everything setup the way I want it.

Hi 2Hobos,

Welcome to the wonderful world of Linux Mint and its excellent forum!

There are a few good Ham software packages in the Software Manager or Synaptic Package Manager (SPM), recommend using the "Synaptic Package Manager (SPM)" and searching for ham. There are also other Ham related software packages that can be installed in Linux Mint as well.

Hi 2Hobos,,
welcome to our forum

you will find a small group of HAMs around these parts,
& an much bigger group of Ex Windows Users, as well.

Greeting 2Hobos,
Welcome to Linux Mint from another Ham. There are many good programs out there for Ham's depending upon what you want to do. I'm sure you will be able to set it all up and it will give you much pleasure. 73's Dave kc1di
