HamRadio on FreeBSD
The HamRadio on FreeBSD project is an effort to make FreeBSD a viable OS for Ham Radio operators. Linux has captured a lot of attention amongst HamRadio operators due to such things as AX.25 being part of the network stack and better publicity. Our aim is to improve hamradio support in ports and to do FreeBSD advocacy amongst HamRadio operators.
There is a mailing list devoted to Ham radio operators on BSD in general, not just FreeBSD:
Most of the porters doing Hamradio related ports are on this list.
Current ports are at http://www.freshports.org/hamradio
Two of the members on BSD-Ham are also committers xride, db There are a few other committers who are ham radio operators.
My efforts have been published here: http://bsdtalk.blogspot.com/2007/05/bsdtalk111-freebsd-developer-diane.html
Dru Lavigne has wrriten about my efforts http://blogs.ittoolbox.com/unix/bsd/archives/ham-radio-on-freebsd-14564
I am also the author of a Live FreeBSD disk loaded with hamradio specific programs.
The ISOs are being mirrored in germany and the u.s.
