Bill is the Linux in the Ham Shack resident show notes taker, occasional co-host, keeper of all knowledge and all-around good guy.
Together, they are the co-hosts of Linux in the Ham Shack. Linux in the Ham Shack is a podcast, a state of mind and a phenomenon. Originally begun to help amateur radio operators move from Microsoft and other closed-source operating systems and applications over to Linux and Free Software, the show has broadened its scope. Now consisting of a bi-weekly audio podcast, live streaming audio, community event sponsorship and general outreach, LHS helps to expose ham radio enthusiasts to FOSS and FOSS enthusiasts to ham radio. Join us every other Tuesday night for the live broadcast, subscribe with your favorite podcatcher, and visit with us at your local ham fest or FOSS convention. We are Linux, ham radio and Open Source for EVERYONE.
