1/2 Some changes: As a new 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.

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?

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 😊

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.
