Amateur Radio in next month's Linux Journal

- Amateur Radio
I just pulled down the December version of Linux Journal a couple of minutes ago. I made it all the way to page 4 and read that next month's issue would be on Amateur Radio (or at least some portion there of). I'm excited to see that Amateur Radio and Open Source has been written about together because they do share so many similarities. Amateur radio operators used to build all their equipment and help mentor each other on developing better communications stations. Open source software is very similar to that. While I might not build my transceivers, I do still build many of my antennas which is something I enjoy. Amateur radio operators, also like OSS developers, are in it to help people and have some fun in the mean time. Yep, Amateur Radio and OSS... a match made in heaven.
