[CQ-Contest] [RTTY] Linux contesting software?

As you might expect, the pickings are slimmer under Linux. But there is some
software out there.

TLF is a contesting program for Linux similar to TR-Log, and in fact it uses
the same file format. See
http://home.claranet.nl/users/reinc/TLF-0.2.htmlfor details. It
supports RTTY contesting through the gMFSK program (
http://gmfsk.connect.fi/index.html) or it can use an external controller.

I have not used TLF to do a full contest, but I have tried it out and it
runs and appears to be a viable option. Don't know how Linux literate you
are, but if you're not interested in fiddling with it a bit then you might
stick with Windows. As far as I know there is nothing out there for Linux on
quite the same level as N1MM or Writelog, but I've managed to do fine using
only Linux and Mac OS X in the hamshack for over a year now.
