    How many people here like to develop/code their own software?

    For amateur radio, I fall more in the builder category, rather than just wanting be an appliance operator (of either hardware or software). Way back in my youth, I built a couple vacuum tube radios, and even my own microcomputer (RCA 1802 based). But I don't have the tools (or eyesight) to work with the fun new surface mount stuff, so I now home-brew software instead of electronic hardware.

    I written Arduino code for keyers, some radio control stuff for Raspberry Pi's running Linux, and full blown DSP/SDR code for both Raspberry Pi's and iOS devices (iPhones, iPads).

    Anyone else here?

    I mangle others software to my own use and then send it back to the original author , just to see if they recognize it...

    I have a whole lot of spreadsheets for calculating radio-related stuff, which I wrote. It's not really what I'd call "code", though.

    That's OK. I often don't recognize my own code. ("what dumbbell wrote this... ... oh, me")

    I started developing amateur radio software the year I got my novice ticket and became a DXer: 1990.

    I write a variety of software products for Ham Radio, mainly to do with mapping. It doesn't earn much money, but I enjoy the challenge.
