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.

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?

@M0YNG Never was on 30m before but it was said to be a nice band for CW. That's why decided to build an antenna. 30m is digimode/CW only so there is no SSB activity. One additional feature: no contests are allowed on WARC bands. This band feels like 20m but also opens at night. I only tried FT8 and heard stations from the US, south america, falkland islands, japan, australia etc. but worked only european stations so far.

@M0YNG Thank you!

Yes, saw the picture of the broken mast 🙁 hope you find a solution to be qrv again soon.

New blog entry on how to build the shortened 30m dipole I tooted a few days ago:

@dl4mat Sure - and I'm practicing e.g. with lcwo and but don't you think it would be fun to practice with real hams from all over the world? You would anyway need a device like the morserino as a sound generator so you would be heard over the phone.

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 😊

@Cedara @nocci mit Büchern von No Starch Press lag ich bisher noch nie falsch. Du kannst auf der Seite sich ein Probe Kapitel lesen

@M0YNG if you could spare some time, it would be great trying to call me again. Wasn't in the shack when you tried yesterday

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

@M0YNG Thank you - will try to call in there in about an hour or so
