    While Windows PC users can use JTAlert to act as a conduit between WSJT-X and N3FJP logging software, there has existed no such solution for Linux users...until now!

    I am pleased to announce that I have created a utility (in Python), aptly named wsjtx_to_n3fjp and it may be found on GitHub here:

    If you find this software useful, I would appreciate it if you sent me a QSL card. (I love getting those.)

    Dave,
    How are you running N3FJP software under Linux? Wine? I have been looking for a way out of Windows for years, and the only application holding me there is N3FJP... :)

    Hi Dave,

    Before I answer your question, please understand that wsjtx_to_n3fjp does not require N3FJP to run under Linux. wsjtx_to_n3fjp communicates over the network, so N3FJP can be running on a separate Windows laptop or desktop computer, or even within a virtualized Windows environment, such as VMware or VirtualBox can provide under Linux.

    That said, I am personally running N3FJP under WINE. I had to install some additional software, mainly DotNet, but it works well for me once I figured it all out.

    See this screen capture of N3FJP running under WINE on Ubuntu Linux:
