Computers in the shack
Computers have been part of a well-equipped radio shack for some years, mostly for data communications and logging/contesting. More recently, cheap online connections have brought Internet resources into many amateur stations. This chapter aims to show that there are many other uses for the shack computer, including making it an essential tool for the constructor.
