[amsat-bb] Latest TQSL on Ubuntu

For anyone new to Linux who's confused:

When ARRL releases a new version of TQSL, they only supply the source code
as far as Linux goes. They do not maintain the respective packages for each
distribution, like they do for windows.

The package maintainer for a particular distribution will have to compile
the source for each architecture and version before it will install
"automatically" through a package manager.

So, a lot of times there will be a delay between when you see the ARRL
announce that a new version is released, and when you will see it show up
in your Linux package manager as an update ready to be pushed out and

This delay is the time between a source release and the maintainer building
the package for your particular distro, version, and architecture.

If you don't want to wait you can always compile and install yourself, not
hard to do at all once you get used to it!
