Discovered this service recently, a finger-based social network
If you need a finger client and have rustc installed, you can use this: https://git.alexwennerberg.com/misc/tree/main/item/finger.rs
I relaunched my personal website after I figured out how to handle the imprint obligation (Impressumspflicht). The new home can be found here: https://qrz.is
Furthermore, I moved my GitHub repos to https://git.qrz.is. Still looking for the best method for notifying GitHub visitors about the new location.
Here is a nice cheat sheet for those who also have problems interpreting the excellent hamsql.com solar report banner: https://noji.com/hamradio/pdf-ppt/noji/Noji-Article-Band-Conditions-Banner.pdf #hamradio
Today I learned about pylint (https://www.pylint.org/) and then about how crappy my code is - but I learned and fixed a lot. This tool is amazingly easy to use and gives good results!
qrzlogger (https://github.com/exitnode/qrzlogger) is now installable via pip:
# python3 -m pip install qrzlogger
All this Python packaging is new to me so I hope it works.
I am thrilled how far you can get with 4w transmission power (SSB / Phone). The uBitx is a surprisingly nice TRX! The map shows the result after a few evenings of operating the uBitx. #hamradio
I'm in the progress of developing a Python command line application to log QSOs directly into the QRZ.com logbook.
It's still in its early phase (started today) but it is already able to query call sign data from qrz, list all previous QSOs with that call, ask the user for QSO data and then upload the QSO via the API.
There is no input validation or hamlib/flrig integration implemented yet but it's kinda usable - on an alpha level.
What makes operating the uBitx so enjoyable, is that there is nothing to fiddle around on the device. You can select a frequency and alter the volume - that's it. Absolutely distraction free operating. In combination with the limitating output power I find it comparable with riding a single speed bike.
