I am writing a short chapter on using computers in amateur radio, for
the new edition of the RSGB's Radio Communication Handbook.
This is about construction and not operating, and I am interested in
what software is used by group members when designing building and
testing amateur radio equipment, including antennas and not just for
This includes any software that is still available, whether it is
freeware or paid-for
Also, do you have favourite web sites or discussion groups to
exchange technical (not operating) information?
Are there any other ways you use a computer to improve your ability
to make radio gear?
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
