To original poster - go to bed, let it sit and see what you have
tomorrow. Chances are it will be locked on 8 birds and settled down.
I found the KE5FX remote link very useful as a reference system in
learning about LH. I think I hosed up that machine pretty good in the
learning process too (sorry to all).
Hijacked thread. Yes - this would be great to see done on a linux
machine. I don't know that much about LH, but something done cross
platform (PyQt or such - could make binaries for win, linux, and mac)
in a server/client config would be great. I don't know much about
NTP other than pointing machines to NTP servers for time, but having
the server side provide also be an NTP server would be the cats ass
for me. Pretty big wish list for someone who can't write code out of
a wet paper bag huh?
