For those who are interested in ColorSpot, the CLI DX cluster client: git.qrz.is/clemens/colorspot

The software can be easily installed via pip:

# python3 -m pip install colorspot

I observed that it eats a lot of CPU when processing a line which is noticable on a rpi. Will look into that.

I'd be happy to get some feedback.

If you don't want the lotw integration, just keep the username at N0CALL in the config.

Came up with the name "colorspot" for the CLI DX cluster client and added support for colorization by continent (see screenshot). Country and continent determination are more solid now.

I created a three part series on how to enable remote operation with a Yaesu FT-991a and automate a START/KEY tuner: grundstil.de/n3rd/ham/remote_f

Helped myself with "sox -c1 -n 1750.wav synth 2 sine 1750" and added playing this wav file as a macro in fldigi

Does anyobdy know the CAT command to send a 1750 burst tone? Trying to remotely key up a repeater with an FT991a.

I just don't get how airspy products are so focused on Windows and have only a spotty open source approach. I have a remote Airspy HF Discovery listening post which I cannot upgrade because it is, naturally, running linux.

I'm going to be running a JOTA station with a group of Cub Scouts this Saturday from 1300Z-20:00Z. I will be trying to work 20m and 40m and if/when all else fails, I'll be on D-STAR REF033A.

If you want to poke your head in, there will be kids dying to talk on the radio. It's a lot of fun!

I'm sitting on an brand new wouxun KG-UV9D Plus - I don't need, I'd sell it for 120 EUR (plus shipping if not in munich, german).

If anyone's interested.

I am leaving Facebook. Mastodon might be my new home. Maybe. But here I wrote about why I left thezuck: grundstil.de/words/thoughts/le
