Pinned toot

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 :)

The DIY 30m dipole made it over the pond 😀 DL6MHC (JN49) --> VO1NC (GN38) via FT8

I successfully moved my logbook to (self-hosted) so I'm finally able to migrate to a Linux desktop in the shack. The following diagram shows how it might look.

red=hardware
blue=local software
yellow=web services
dashed lines=no solution yet

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: clemens.name/30m-dipole/

I opened a ticket with 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 😊

The Open CW Keyer is a great little device. Open source hard- and software - like it always should be.

A package just arrived - Looks like I have a little hardware project for tonight :)

This looks like a cool project.

"The Open Book aims to be a simple device that anyone with a soldering iron can build for themselves. The Open Book should be comprehensible: the reader should be able to look at it and understand, at least in broad strokes, how it works. It should be extensible, so that a reader with different needs can write code and add accessories that make the book work for them."

I just signed up as a CW academy student. Let's see how this works out.

I created a list of useful mods for the G90 transceiver here: clemens.name/g90-mods/

These include:
* power cable
* ferrite beads
* microphone mod
* bigger VFO knob

I also listed some additional resources. Hope this is useful to some of you.
