7.5. What's new for amateur radio operators

Fedora 12 includes a number of applications and libraries that are of interest to amateur radio operators and electronic hobbyists. Many of these applications are included in the Fedora Electronic Lab spin. Interesting applications may also be found under Circuit Design, Embedded Development, and Science and Mathematics. For a complete list of amateur radio applications available within Fedora see Applications for amateur radio at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Applications_for_Amateur_Radio on the wiki.
This section outline significant changes in these applications since the last release of Fedora. For complete information on all changes, major or minor, refer to the tables at the end of this document.
hamlib
hamlib has added support for:
  • NRD-525
  • Kenwood TRC-80
  • Winradio G305/G315
  • Yaseau FT2000 and FTDX-9000
xlog
In addition to a number of bug fixes, xlog now includes a feature to ease handling of unknown countries. When "Tools -> Find unknown countries" is selected, xlog will show a list of contacts for which DXCC lookup fails. You can then correct this by using a "DXCC-" string in the awards column.
