I am installing a Linux
(UBUNTU) based computer on TASHTEGO and I am trying to figure a way to send/receive e-mail without buying
a PACTOR modem
which will cost as much as the SSB radio
is working on a program called "hfterm" which will use the sound card in the computer to communicate directly with the radio
without a PACTOR modem
. The ARRL is developing WINMOR to do the same thing although I'm not sure it has been ported to Linux yet. Anybody out there with any experience with these two protocols/programs? Seems like an efficient and money
saving way to save the $1250 or so it costs for a PACTOR II MODEM / TNC.
