During the meeting today a question was asked about what tools were 
available on Linux for amateur radio operators.  Since I am running 
Ubuntu 16.04LTS, running a quick search using the APT command, "xudo apt 
search amateur radio" returned the following results.

Since my radio skills are a bit weak, I have little knowledge on on how 
to use the tools, much less on how to set them up.  I hope the more 
experienced radio operators will be willing to take the time to test a 
few of these packages and let us konw how well they work.
