Hi all!

I am a software developer, Linux freak and have decided to drop Nobeltec (have such an installation in the Nimbus 340 Commander we bought last summer) and go for OpenCPN. Was leaning towards CE for a while but now that the radar stuff in OpenCPN seems to be progressing I tipped over to OpenCPN and after reading/testing I realized that this is where I belong since I am a FOSS developer too!

(No, not a C++ wx guy, but it would be fun to do "something", perhaps some kind of plugin or such, will see)

My immediate interest is radar (have an old Nobeltec IR2-2D20 hooked up using a Sealevel RS422->USB, but I presume this old radar is not interesting) and testing OpenCPN with my hw - the thing mildly interesting to you guys may be my Maretron SSC200 which I hope works. Someone had mentioned that USB100 + GPS100 works so hopefully the SSC200 also does. Regarding radar I am looking hard towards the Simrad BR24/3G/4G - seem fairly inexpensive. And I also have an EasyAIS unit.

regards, Göran Krampe, Stockholm

PS. Any other OpenCPN users in the Stockholm area - drop me an email
