Here again, is another piece of Amateur Radio software for Windows running under Linux. This time it is the Moxon Rectangle Generator by Dan Maguire (AC6LA), running under Wine for Ubuntu Linux. Nice. Again, on this box I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (long-term stable).

Here is an easy 50-ohm 2-watt dummy load for QRP ham radio service. Two 100-ohm 1-watt resistors in parallel make the circuit. A core of a scrap of RG-58/U coaxial cable forms an insulated wire down the center. A 140 watt Weller soldering gun was used to "tin" the metal barrel of the connector. The insulated wire was inserted (after it cooled!) with a 15-watt iron.
These are in my Flickr set "Amateur Radio QRP 2W Dummy Load".

The power and flexibility of Linux is shown here, as Echolink for Windows is running using the "Wine" emulation software. Like my recent Linux-related post, it is Ubuntu 10.04 LTS.
Wine launches the Windows installer, and the installer thinks its running under Windows.

All of the photos are shown in my Flickr photo set "Amateur Radio Micro and Mini HT Case Ideas"
Yes, these are all from the Home Depot. It all worked great for two HTs. Here is a random picture with my Yaesu FT-60R. My miniature Yaesu VX-3R fits great in their Contractor's mobile phone case!

Here I managed to get Bob Freeth's (G4HFQ) Yaesu radio programing software running under Linux. The computer involved here is running Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (long-term stable). A Windows environment emulator called "Wine" launches the Windows installer, and the installer thinks it is running under Windows.
