Hi! My name is Sven and I was born in 1984. I‘m a HAM since 2001 and upgraded my license only 20y later (Dec 2021) 😁.
I’m located in the very west of Germany in a city called Duisburg (JO31IJ).
I‘m interested in (but not FT8) and I like QSOs that go on for longer than 10 minutes. A few weeks ago I started learning CW.

The is now commercially available. First as a kit, later also fully assembled. The 4.50€ price difference makes it difficult to find an argument for self-assembly. Here is the official source of supply: rowaves.com/product/trusdx-5-b

@dl5psy This is an AllstarLink node which consists of

* Raspberry pi 4 with Asterisk (voip software)
* modified Baofeng 888s
* DC-DC converters
* modified USB soundcard

With this I have my personal FM simplex repeater at home which is able to connect to other Allstar nodes as well as to Echolink hosts (not tried yet). With a simple analog FM HT you can connect to other nodes via DTMF and work the world.

Here is a good starting point: allstarsetup.com/

Hello! My name is Michael, I was born in the late 70s and I am located in Duisburg (Western Germany), JO31HK.

I'm just a bloody newbie – without a clue about electrics – about to take the exam to get my license, german class E. Looking to get into ham radio the hard way: .

In the future, I would love to be out and about with my and a tx in my luggage, doing radio operations high up on the slagheaps of the Ruhr area.

Is anyone here interested in the (tr)uSDX? I find that little box quite fascinating and would enjoy to rebuild it. But I have a little bit of respect for starting a group buy. I would prefer to just join a group order, but I don't know any groups in my area.

If you look for old stuff in the basement to build an , and find the VERY old stuff
