Hi -

I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for Linux-based:

1) CW practice software? Something simple that will run under KDE and use ALSA for sound?

2) Linux-based logging software? Specifically something that runs from the command line with Ncurses or a smiliar, non-graphical interface? I do a lot of work away from home and would like to be able to remotely log in to my machine to enter logging information.

If such a thing doesn't exist, I might write one, what features and fields to people want in it? Does everybody prefer web-based or command line? Or both?

Another Linux fan here...

Check out these sites...
http://radio.linux.org.au/
http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/Linux/docs/HOWTO/other-formats/html_single/AX25-HOWTO.html
http://he.fi/archive/linux-hams/about.html
http://www.qsl.net/kf8gr/index.html

For CW practice, I use a non-graphical command line package named, appropriately enough, 'cw', which is an installable package in the distribution I use (Gentoo) or available from
http://cwrapper.sourceforge.net/
I wrote a quick and dirty bash script to input random characters to it, with command line arguments for speed, tone, number of characters; and echo the characters once completed.

Other packages include...
http://cwtext.sourceforge.net/
http://www.qsl.net/pg4i/linux/cwdaemon.html
and I'm sure there are many others... do some internet searching.

There are Linux-based logging programs around (check the links on the various sites, above), but haven't used them, because (gosh, do I admit this in writing!?!..) but I still log on paper, in a Log Book.

If you find a logging program you like, reply here (I'd like to know what others' find helpful).

73,
