What do you do with ham radio on freebsd?  I haven't looked into it
much, but it seems that there isn't nearly as many programs/device
drivers for  freebsd as linux has.  I like how debian actually has a ham
radio section for it.  I'd like to try out some of the digital radio
stuff like AX.25

I sense much NT in you.
NT leads to Bluescreen.
Bluescreen leads to downtime.
Downtime leads to suffering.
NT is the path to the darkside.
Powerful Unix is.
