Windows and Mac have plenty of ham radio applications to be used under their operating systems, but what about Linux users? The following is an interview with Petr, OK2CQR, the developer of CQRLog, the logging program for Linux users.
I finally finished my LoTW WAS! I still didn't QSO my last state - Wyoming. Today was lucky day for me, because I made QSO with Dwayne, WY7FD from WY. QSO is already confirmed and I also send the application. I'm very happy. It took me quite long time to complete my WAS award.
Today I celebrated my 30th birthday. My wife, Misa, baked me very nice cake. It looked like front panel of my transceiver TS-930 SAT. I got two very nice books one is about psychology of men in battle – Acts of War. The behavior of Men in Battle from Richard Holmes, and the second is Flashback from Dan Simmons. I'm looking forward to read it. But I got another gift. I was really surprised.
HamQTH.com started 6 moths ago. Information about new free ham radio call book was published on 29 of June 2011. When it started we had a few problems with old records for many US stations. I did a mistake in script that imported data from FCC database. Fortunately, I fixed the problem soon.
2012 is the 75th anniversary of the ARRL’s DXCC Award--the world’s preeminent DXing award continues to be DXCC, so reaching the “Diamond milestone” is an event that we all want to celebrate. Going back to the roots of the award, and specifically reading the 1937 DXCC List (January, 1937 QST pages 52-3), we can learn what countries were counted at the onset led us to create the Diamond DXCC Challenge.

After long time we had great conditions. I have only limited time for operating, spent all openings to W6,VK, JA etc. with our sons playing with model trains. I was looking for USA stations because I still need WY for LoTW WAS. I already have a few QSO with West Virginia but nobody is using LoTW. Unfortunatelly I have no luck in CQ WW. Maybe in ARRL DX CW.
You probably know the VMware player - a freeware virtualization software package from VMware. You can create your own microgaming casinos in new zealand virtual machines for free. It doesn't support features such as Teams, multiple snapshots and Clones etc. It is available only for non-commercial usage. At home, I'm pure Linux user and need to test CQRLOG on several distributions, so I use it very often.
