“This was quite unexpected,” said KB1OIQ. “I am very pleased that the project has been so well accepted by our ham radio community. Both the Linux and ham radio communities have a tradition of helping others, and I have benefited greatly from their combined patience and tutelage. This is my way of saying ‘thank you’ to those communities.”
