A new project

I’ve been feeling a bit restless lately so I decided to resurrect an oft-thought of but seldom-worked on project: I’m writing my own console mode amateur radio logging program. It’s nothing fancy and is pretty bare-bones for now, but I haven’t seen a good cross-platform (more than just Linux and Windows) program yet. I’m writing it in Free Pascal for compatibility with the operating systems I’m targeting: DOS, Win32, Win64, Linux (32 and 64 bit), OS/2 32-bit, and if I can get some help, OS X also. I’d like to even get this on the BSDs if I can too. First, however, a working shell of a program is needed and that’s what I’m doing now.

I’ve taken down my station temporarily in anticipation of a new 12’x20′ shed my parents and I have gone “halfsies” on.  I have a window in my half of the shed and that is going to become my ham radio shack.  I’ll have a lot more room in the shed for my equipment and computer as well as my workbench in there so I have somewhere to work on equipment safely.  Can’t wait.
