@F1RUM I know it's annoying but I think you might have to wait for a while. Bought a small microphone adapter from an ukrainian seller on ebay 2 or 3 months ago and it took 5 weeks from the Ukraine to Germany. Guess it's pretty much corona related.
The ISS has a new FM repeater and it is already QRV! https://www.ariss.org/press-releases/september-2-2020
@pandabo oh, okay. Thanks for the input!
Today I finally had my first succeful satellite QSO! The other operator was maritime mobile, the satellite was SO-50. I nearly messed up when I lost the satellite during the QSO while manually holding the arrow antenna. Is there a good solution for mounting the arrow II antenna on a tripod? #hamradio
@F1RUM Congrats! Was one of the best purchases in this hobby. I replaced my shortenend end fed with a full size halfe wave wire for 40m yesterday, tuned it with the NanoVNA and had some awesome QSOs :)
@M0YNG Portable DMR Hotspot?
@KC3OWU yes, it's intended for helping the fediverse connect over dmr, not just mastodon.radio users.
Using an AnyTone here, but I also have a Baofeng that I'm working on hacking some codeplug software to use on Linux, not working yet though!
I hear good things about opengd, I'd very much like open source firmware if I could find a 77 to buy (for a sensible price!)
I learned a valuable lesson: after 2h of not being able to break up any pileup by selecting interesting stations from dx cluster spots, I decided to manually search the bands. A US station came on air, I was able to work him with a report of 59 and only seconds after he was spotted and hell brake loose. A minute later and I would not have had any chance to come through. A new state for me and a new insight: Be the first and you can work what seemed unworkable.
I forgot to link the archive.org page with all issues: https://archive.org/details/73-magazine
I started reading ham radio magazines, on a monthly basis which came out exctly 50 years ago. This month's issue: The 73 Magazine from June 1970: https://ia800702.us.archive.org/27/items/73-magazine-1970-06/06_June_1970.pdf
@vu3rdd Thank you! That might be what I was looking for,
Is there any free or even open source COM port emulator/splitter for Windows 10 available? I'm using "Virtual Serial Port Emulator" from Eterlogic at the moment but am interested in alternatives. #hamradio
@M0YNG Thank you! The Arduino tells you which antenna is selected after switching to an antenna or when you open the URL without any parameters. If you are interested, here is the code (copy paste theft from various inetrnet sources): https://gist.github.com/exitnode/26b67503e8915f22e0e1b519f81edf60
