In this episode, we have a great interview with Linux software developer and ham radio enthusiast from the Czeck Republic, Petr Hlozek – OK2CQR. He is the author of CQRlog and HamQTH.com. Unfortunately, Petr’s audio was a little hot and nothing we could do made it better. Our sincerest apologies. Sound problems aside, we hope you enjoy this fascinating look into the life and mind of an Open Source ham. 73 de The LHS Guys http://lhspodcast.info/2014/05/lhs-episode-128-interview-with-ok2cqr/
I wanted to release new version after 17th of April but ARRL has changed addresses and autorization to LoTW. This is very important feature and I decided to release new version sooner. Changelog is quite long and includes a few nice features. Packages on Lauchpad are already created, CQRLOG should be available in distribution updates very soon.
New version fixed a few bugs and added three new features. Nothing very important (except bugfixes) but makes CQRLOG more user friendly. This version was realsed so soon because I want to have it in incoming Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. More in Download section.
Launchpad is going to start building packages in a few minues, please be patient.
The Debian Freeze deadline to Ubuntu 14.04 is very close. Because Ubuntu 14.04 is LTS (long therm support), I'd like to fix as many bugs as possible. If you find any bug, please let me know and I'll try to fix it ASAP. Thanks a lot!
It has been 14 days since the last release and we have new version again. There are a few bugs fixed and two new features added. This version is released so early because I hope it could get to new Ubuntu LTS. More in Download section.
Launchpad is going to start building packages in about one hour. Please be patient.
This version has one feature requested by many users - online log upload. It supports HamQTH, ClubLog and HRDLog.net. I've been using HamQTH upload for a week or two and it works very well. How to enable and set online log upload is described in updated help files. There are also o few more new features and lot of bugfixes. More in download section.
Further analysis shows that QSL routes are used mostly once, in the month of publishing. Very few hams looking for older data and the need of QSL Routes older than 4 years is negligible. Therefore, a huge database of QSL Routes with records older than a decade is an overkill. Growing number of LoTW confirmations and eQSL records results in a lowered importance of QSL Route info. Since Jan. 1, 2014, the database used in CQRlog is trimmed, all records older than January 2011 are removed.
