FreeBSD Ham Radio

The Ham Radio on FreeBSD Project is an effort to make FreeBSD a great operating system for ham radio operators. Linux has captured attention due to such things as AX.25 being part of the network stack and better publicity. Our aim is to improve ham radio support in ports and advocate for FreeBSD amongst ham radio operators.
