    We'll get hamclock installed and there are also some other hidden gems in this one if you watch closely. Designed to be thorough, commands in the description and always able to rewind and see it again. Hope it helps out!

    KM4ACK has had this in video for a couple of years now plus added versions. I used his vids and yes Hamclock is good. ACK is very solid in giving the dope on it,

    Love this app. Truly usable raspberry pi project that I keep on all the time. The commands to make it come up when plugged in is very useful!

    I put this on my club email list as sharing this clever app, and the only reply i got was someone saying that "if you dont want to do any of the IT stuff you can buy it from XXX", and it was hundreds of dollars to buy.... I was so disappointed in my club. lol. absolute facepalm

    Awesome video, exactly the upcoming project I intend to build once I get all of the parts. I think what sets this video apart from others is that it specifically addresses a specific single use setup for just doing ham clock. Excellently done.

    Very timely post. Thank you. I have all the parts I need for this already but zero time to do the research! Posting so I can easily find it easily when snow flies here in Cleveland.

    Nice!

    Great job Steve, I am old Unix guy converting to linix, love it great stuff. How can you install on a Ubuntu existing system. Should be fairly simple without full takeover. I have to go to banking and QRZ on my Ubuntu system.
    thanks 73, Bob W3QJ

    Well it worked, once. Left it running overnight and it sure was pretty. Had to restart the computer and now its gone. Anything I type in the command prompt it seams like the computer has amnesia.

    Thanks for this! Just built it last night with a pi 2 I had laying around and a spare monitor. Works a treat. Will update to a 3 or 4 to make things a little zippier, but the 2 is getting it done at the moment.

    I have this and the Geochron. Both will always have a monitor in my shack. Love them both.
