@theyounggreenbaron i am in my 40s, have two kids and had to bury my beloved cat today :(

With cats you can be alone without being alone

My favourite HT upgrade : a whatever-crap-it-was-before-to-BNC-adapter

RT @Altomare3@twitter.com

Before the advent of ROM chips, some programs used to be hand soldered using diode matrixes.
Here is a prime example of that, from an Intertechnique Multi-8, a french version of the Microdata 800 (1969~1970).

@dl5psy I really like this channel - lots of good info well presented. I built the node because of this video popping up in my recommendations :)

@dl5psy Since it is working now, I can now do the fun stuff, eg. adding a LCD to the frontpanel.

I was thinking about posting a write-up on my website so I won't forget what I've done when I need to fix something in the future ;)

@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/

It’s working! Just had my first QSO on Hubnet via Allstar with some wonderful people helping me to configure my audio levels. This is way more fun than DMR.

@n3jln Let's hope the best that this can/will be fixed soon.

@n3jln I have two questions:

Why is that?
In the pic with the red wire baskets: is this a freezer that is always open?

#Gitea is joining the fediverse 🎉 We can now announce we've been accepted into the #NLnet funding round that we applied to. nlnet.nl/project/Gitea/

Thank you to @NGIZero @dachary @forgefriends and so many others for getting us to this point.

We are very much looking forward to many wonderful things that federation within forges can support.

Allstar node progress so far:

* CM108 USB soundcard has been modded
* rpi4 is mounted in the case
* two buck converters have been installed (5V and 3,7V)
* enclosure back panel is finished (PowerPole connector and Ethernet port)

Just watched this video and finally understood what Allstar is, how it works and what you need for it: youtube.com/watch?v=qzmHeXg268

Thinking about building a personal Allstar node since this looks like fun project.

My Chrismas/NewYear holiday project was this frontend for the RadioBerry/HermesLite2 SDR that gives the user, some knobs and switches.. It has been a fun project, far from complete. The board design was by a friend of mine VU2XTO.
