some activity in U.K. !    only U.K. atm

50MHz  was good open  only single hop for us  strong  but not real DX

4X4DK  579  heard working into W0  land  !     no DX  of that sort here
and CN8KD    also into west USA...

3B9FR   QSL card was in the mail   that was a quick service of M0OXO


UBUNTU
continuing story
een ezel stoot zich geen 2 keer aan dezelfde software...
Now I installed UBUNTU on an other LAPTOP  that has no hardware issues
To find out if UBUNTU can run stable ..
This PC had W7 home SPI installed
Starting with the UBUNTU CD
The options presented are
 Format W7   and install UBUNTU

other    install  on a different partition   etc  i can not recall all  and screen capture can not be done

B.t.w this CD could automatic install U. on a new partition or I did not understand right?

I choose to run UBUNTU from CD  and  make a new U. partition by shrinking W7 partition.
Using Ubuntu GPART tool.   But the W7 partition was marked by GPART as unreadable and therefore not shrinkable.
Gpart that was presented  as easier and faster as W7 disk management?   not true!
W7 drivemanager could do that easy
then again reboot with the U CD and install
using the 2nd option install Ubuntu along W7   to be able to boot W7 or U
thats what I wanted

It installed U.  did not ask a what partition it should install dough

The reboot system  no OS choice came up  no BIOS boot message /options.
Just Ubuntu did boot!
Gone is W7 !   ?
Also boot from CD  gone!  it ends in a empty Ubuntu colored screen after some rattling of the CD player

After numerous reboots pressing esc f8 f10    the CD did boot again and GPart showed the
4 partitions  including a Linux swap  this swap is used as external memory swap it had nothing to do with booting
It seems W7 partition is still there  only it is unreachable UBUNTU does not allow W7 to boot
is it the revenge of the Linux crowd?
I choose to install U along existing W7 and that would give me a dual boot option.
But it was not told that this dual boot option can only made to work with lot of effort by skilled Linux sect members
So how now boot W7   something like GRUP2  ?
How is this dual boot W7 / U  presented to the user as a boot option menu?
I have seen a boot menu on the other Laptop that let me choose between HD and CD boot.
But nothing indicates now that there is an other boot-able OS present.

Is this UBUNTU   unusable for serious work?
Or is it a nice hobby OS project that is not yet finished.

 Looks good if it boots it connects to Wlan and USB devices quick
 But  it does not run long until the next hangup.
It did not do what it promised no dual boot  even the bios boot entry not shown
Possible that can work but not after some thorough study ?
Are the lovers of UBUNTU blind?
Do they don't  mind to reboot as in the old DOS days?

Windows might be technical inferior to Linux  but this Laptop with W7 is the only nice reliable working system right now.
