    I have Linux Mint, about version 14, on a laptop. I was wondering if there were any new linux MInt logging programs ? I would rather not buy Win 10 and use that.

    I don't want to take my desktop out to my shed, its not insect proof.

    If it exports in ADIF, thats fne. I can then import into N3FJP's software.

    Any suggestions ? And I would need to know what extra software, etc. I would have to install to use it.

    Thanks !

    Was using Mint but now Ubuntu. WSJT-X and Happy Hams JTAlert. Make sure you add yourself to the dialout group also.

    Since WWV, et al, are being shut off, I have no way of making sure my computer clock matches other people's. Maybe next year my relatives and I can run an Ethernet cable out to my shed form the house. We tried WiFi extenders, etc. flaky connection.

    So what I'm looking for is logging software mostly for HF that I can run on my linux laptop.

    IMHO the best native linux logging software are: cqrlog for daily logging and tlf for contests.

    No problem.
    You might find that first steps with tlf are not easy, but it is worth your effort :)

    This is why every ham needs their very own atomic clock.

    I bought this USB GPS from Amazon ( ) and use NMEATime2 from while portable, without internet. It works so well, I continued using it while at home with an internet connection. Total setup was around $40, but it's been worth the initial cost. There are Linux options for GPS time sync.
