WSPR on a G5 PowerPC iMac with Lubuntu 16.10 and WSJT-X v1.7

Dear All,

I hope this might be of interest.

With very special thanks to everyone at the Hamlib and WSJT development groups I have been able to resurrect my old G5 PowerPC iMac.

It is now running Lubuntu 16.10, Hamlib 3.1, WSJT-X v1.7 (built using JTSDK) and all while driving a Funkamateur FA-SDR-TRX SDR kit.

Currently operating WSPR on 40 meters here in the UK.

Dust off that old G5 iMac and put it back into service, you know you want too.

Sean.
