#Introduction to mastodon.radio: I'm a newly licensed (July 19) amateur radio operator from Germany. My callsign is DL6MHC. I work in the field of information security, like to photograph on film, play games on 8-bit computers, support the FSFE, play chess (very unsuccessful) and prefer a command line over a GUI. Thanks for having me :)
2/2 I also take a time off learning CW but will pick it up some day again since this is what I want to do in the future. Untill then I will not invest any more time into all the non-essential stuff and have a few SSB QSOs a week instead. This should reduce distractions from real life to a minimum. My shack is now reduced to a power supply, a 20W HF transceiver and a hand mike.
1/2 Some changes: As a new #hamradio operator I made ~2350 QSOs since I started last July. As one can see, I've put a lot of time and effort into the hobby that should have spent on more important things like my family. Time went mostly into digimodes, changing/developing software/hardware setups, troubleshooting and into constantly monitoring WSJT-X. I now decided to quit everything that needs a PC connected to the rig and reduce my activities to SSB, logging manually and filling out QSL cards.
New project: raspberry pi controlled remote antenna switch. One remote rpi for triggering the 4 relais inside the antenna switch and one rpi connected to the TRX in the shack measuring the ATU port's voltage to fully automatically choose the correct antenna for each band. Let's see how this works out :)

What are your thoughts? How would you log from fldigi and flwkey to Cloudlog?
New blog entry on how to build the shortened 30m dipole I tooted a few days ago: https://clemens.name/30m-dipole/
I opened a ticket with #hamshackhotline to create a new conference room dedicated to Morse code training. There's now the new room 313 for hams who like to learn Morse or to improve their cw skills.

Had fun last night making a shortened 30m dipole based on the calculations of OE1MEW. If everything goes well, I’ll be QRV on 30m this weekend 😊 #hamradio
