Google is your friend Richard,

You can find a good web site that mentions most of the programs available
here:

http://radio.linux.org.au/

Fldigi
<http://radio.linux.org.au/pkgdetail.phtml?sectpat=digital&ordpat=title&descpat=&pkgid=463>
comes to mind :-) as well as CQRLOG
<http://radio.linux.org.au/pkgdetail.phtml?sectpat=logging&ordpat=date&descpat=&pkgid=480>
.

But sporting this site above by DATE to show active development or using
google is recommended because some programs have not been indexed there.
