py5mon is a script that decodes CCIR (selcall, 5-tone). Input support is currently limited to WAV files.
snake5 is a communication algorithm for exchanging
information between nodes in a dynamic changing
network. Sender and receiver nodes try to have the
same data at the same time, despite delays. A
simulator is provided.
hamfax is a QT/X11 application for sending and receiving amateur radio facsimiles.
Supported interfaces between computer and transceiver are a sound card and the
MorseLab is a Morse code training system. It features a wide range of audio controls, code drills from live news sites, flashing light drills, adaptive speed controls, the Koch method, the Farnsworth method, and a choice of several character choice strategies.
Debian-Ham is a floppy distribution specifically for contesting and logging. It is based on uClibc, busybox, and tlf. The current scheme uses a LILO boot floppy with a minix root floppy. Network support is included to connect to a DX cluster.
tk120 is a multiplatform programming and cloning
utility for the portable Yaesu VR-120 receiver.
It can read the memory image from the radio,
display the information graphically, and save it
to a file. Memory channels may be exported to or
imported from a .CSV (comma-separated values) file.
sctl is used to control the Bearcat BC895xlt, BC245, BC780, and Radio Shack PRO-2052 trunk tracking scanners. It can read and set memory contents and a numerous settings, and will display and change the current status (e.g. scanning, trunk scanning, etc.). It can also download/store and upload memory bank contents.
LMB is a tool to browse the web using a dumb
terminal that isn't capable of even the most
simple options (like deleting the screen or cursor
placement). All commands are entered as a single
line command. Links are visited by entering the
number that is printed before the link. All other
commands can be changed using the config file.
LMB isn't a real browser, but a frontend to lynx.
Documentation is nearly nonexistant. It is written
in Pascal using the Freepascal compiler. An
x86-linux binary is included.
DBLog is a logging program for radio amateurs
based on a relational database. It allows the user
to log QSOs and export a range of them in ADIF
format. It can read the radio frequency via CAT
interface. It includes a CW Keyer based on
It works with fldigi for digi-modes, and
can store QSL pictures with QSO data.
axspawn-pam is the result of trying to build a version of axspawn that compiles
with modern libs. This version differs from that which is distributed with the
as25-tools package in that it provides login control via MD5, the
Baybox-method, and some other authentication methods.
CW-Trainer is a tool for learning and practicing Morse code,
for passing amateur (ham) radio license exams. It converts
supplied text to code sounds, or generates random symbols.
Speed and Farnsworth compression are adjustable.
RIMiGate is a floppy-based Linux distribution for
running WA4DSY's aprsd. Its goal is to make it easy
to deploy igates for the APRS project.
The ax25-apps package contains programs for the hamradio protocol AX.25 that would be used by normal users (as opposed to network daemons). While not essential, these programs are usually installed if you want to connect to amatuer packet radio networks. Generally it is a good idea to also get the ax25-tools package so you can configure the hamradio ports. This package includes call, listen, ax25ipd and ax25rtd.
tk500 is a multiplatform programming and cloning utility for the portable Yaesu VR-500 receiver. It can read the memory image from the radio, display the information graphically, and save it to a file. It can import information from an RT Systems .RDF file and export memory channel information to a .CSV (comma-separated values) file. Users are free to change most settings and write the memory image back to the receiver. tk500 exploits undocumented features within the radio.
Sam is a Morse code trainer. It is a bash script that runs in a terminal. It beeps and boops out the command-line arguments in Morse code. If there are no command-line arguments, then it beeps and boops the Usage message. Simple, no? But the gimmick is that it prints out the text to the terminal, and the cursor below the text keeps track of which letter is being sounded.
