Thanks for all the info and the scripts.
You're welcome.

I should handle them easily with some practice. My Unix Command Line Skills have deteriorated over the last 15 years, with minimal usage.
Me too. And, Unix/Linux evolves over time, so it's difficult to stay
up to date if you're not continually using it.

I may come back with questions as I get into it.
I'll be looking forward to them.

Once you've experienced the ~6dB gain of a hexbeam, you're station

was difficult (and frightening) at my age. Now eight years older, I'm
unwilling to risk the roof, so I am unable to make repairs.

I got my tech and general tickets on March 14.
Congratulations. I passed both tests at one sitting too.

The HF stuff is set up and awaiting a tuned antenna. I’d like to make a few contacts with Field Day, then work on the Pi stuff.
