Skywave Linux v4.2.0
Software Defined Radio for Global Online Listening
Skywave Linux is a 64 bit live system providing installed and configured software for accessing software defined radio servers locally and on the internet. With this operating system, a person may tune shortwave broadcasts, amateur radio, aeronautical, maritime, or other signals received at remote servers around the world.
SDR software is configured for popular devices, such as the RTL-SDR dongles, Softrocks, Airspy, SDRPlay, and other radios.
Skywave Linux is an X86 64 bit live environment built over Ubuntu Linux, and may be installed on a bootable USB stick, SD card, DVD, or hard drive.
Skywave Linux is an operating system using bleeding-edge technology to robustly access broadcast, utility, military, and amateur radio signals from almost anywhere in the world, including countries with restrictive internet environments. Skywave Linux is set up to connect easily to a large network of state of the art software defined radio (SDR) servers, making it possible to enjoy high performance SDR operation without putting up your own large antennas or on-site radio hardware. All you need to do is boot the system on a computer with internet connectivity, find a remote SDR server in your region of interest, and tune across the spectrum to find signals. Skywave Linux can also operate numerous types of SDR hardware, plugged into the your computer or on the local network. Downloading, installing and configuring SDR software can be difficult for many computer users; Skywave Linux eliminates the hassle by including several applications installed, configured, and ready to run.
Supported SDR Types
Several types of software defined radios are supported by Skywave Linux:
The key to getting most SDR devices and software to function on Linux is having proper drivers installed. Skywave Linux broadly supports these with SoapySDR and Gr-OsmoSDR packages.
For decoding RTTY, CW, PSK, WSPR, WSJT, RDS, and other digital radio transmission modes, use the Fldigi, JS8Call, and WSJT applications. Weather satellite decoding is possible with Noaa-apt for APT and Glrpt for LRPT. Gpredict provides real-time satellite tracking data and doppler corrected tuning control for Gqrx. In some cases it may be necessary to use the PulseAudio Volume Control application to select the best audio source and levels. Basic trunked radio systems may be monitored using SDRTrunk.
Conventional radio and video broadcast streams are also supported in Skywave Linux. VLC Media Player provides global access to music, talk, news, free-speech, and religious stations around the world. Editable playlists of IPTV and IPRADIO stations are located on the internet - available through most search engines. There is a sample radio playlist in the ~/Music folder.
Usage and Installation Options
Skywave Linux is intended to run as a live Linux environment, bootable from an iso file:
YUMI and Ventoy are both capable of creating multiboot drives, so you can Use multiple operating systems for different computing tasks. Also, they create rewritable space to hold your data files or a casper-rw file for persistent settings across reboots.
It is not recommended to burn an actual DVD to run any live computing environment. It is far, far too slow! Use a flash drive or SSD. For ultimate performance, clone the environment to a regular uncompressed file system.
Apps for Coders
Python, Go, Bash, Perl, and Ruby are installed and Neovim is the editor for coding. It looks great. It is functional and streamlined for friction-free workflow. Jupyter Notebook is also installed, and it supports creation, testing, and sharing of applications written in Python, Go, and Bash. Just do it! Make the next leap in software defined radio by writing the next generation of DSP and firmware applications. Beginners and advanced coders will all enjoy the software creation tools available in Skywave Linux.
Command Line Tools
Skywave Linux contains a plethora of efficient and fast command line tools.
Skywave Linux is a 64 bit system, built on a base of Ubuntu 20.04 LTS, with a few MATE Desktop applications and a very riced i3 Window Manager. It is the additional digital signal processing, networking, and signal decoding applications that set Skywave Linux apart from its original base distro. The default username is skywave and there is no password in the default system.
It is sometimes necessary for users to make encrypted connections which provide stronger privacy, security, and ability to circumvent censorship. For that purpose, Lantern, Psiphon, Sshuttle, Outline, and Wireguard client applications are installed. Skywave Linux intends to bash holes in censorship barriers.
Integrity and Authenticity of Skywave Linux
Great effort goes into making Skywave Linux safe and free of malware. To verify that your copy of the iso image file is authentic, undamaged, and unaltered, check the sha256sum against the official authentication document and verify the digital signature of Skywave Linux (Download here: https://sourceforge.net/projects/skywavelinux/files/skywavelinux-authentication.txt/download. Use the "Passwords and Keys" or equivalent application to check the signature. Import the Skywave Linux public key from pool.sks-keyservers.net or keyserver.ubuntu.com.
