Re: AMPR (was meeting)

Trying to keep it on topic for Linux I did some clicking around on
the TAPR site and found things pretty dismal.  Of course there is the 
ax.25 stuff in the kernel.  I also saw an mheard for gnome.

Searching the web however yielded lots of goodies.
The top hit for [linux ham radio] was:
which showed a knoppix for hams link.

As for hardware I saw this at under the amateur radio link:

 9600/1200bps TNC with GPS, 100K MailDrop, w/demo packet and GPS software

Not what I'd call inexpensive...

On a hunch I googled [TNC sound card] and found this:

Which looks like a M$ program.  But, Hey if they can do it so can we.  :-)

Adding linux to the mix, [TNC sound card linux], I found this:

and am free for the first time in a couple years.

This idea of using the sound hardware might have killed dedicated hardware
solutions for TNCs.
