How do you program frequencies into your rigs?
I was asked the other day, if there was any good Open Source software for programing radios. The case in point was asking specifically about the IC-2820 with D-Star. I was pointed at a piece of software called CHIRP which runs on Windows and Linux. I have written a review of it and it should appear shortly.
But it got me wondering. Is there any good Open Source (and especially Linux-based) software out there for programming your rig? I have a mish-mash of hardware from a variety of players and I would like to have a piece of code that I can upload my template(s) into and then push down into the various radios. I would be happy with one for each vendor, or one for each type (like HT/Mobile/Base).
So is there a solution? Let me know how you do it.

In modern computer systems, privacy and security are mandatory. However, connections from the outside over public networks automatically imply risks. One easily available solution to avoid eavesdroppers’ attempts is SSH. But, its wide adoption during the past 21 years has made it a target for attackers, so hardening your system properly is a must.
Additionally, in highly regulated markets, you must comply with specific operational requirements, proving that you conform to standards and even that you have included new mandatory authentication methods, such as two-factor authentication. In this ebook, I discuss SSH and how to configure and manage it to guarantee that your network is safe, your data is secure and that you comply with relevant regulations.Get the Guide
