Did not switch on a rig this weekend 😕
Just soldered few powerpole connectors to replace 5.5mm jacks.
Other point, I've searched how to use my TM-V71 as a local repeater, goal is to stay tuned on 2m call frequency wherever in the house with a handheld but with the power of my main rig and its antenna. I hope I could test it today

@n3jln 🔝 this pulseaudio module seems to be the solution to deport audio

flrig can pilot many device models and I believe it is possible to pilot flrig remotely, isn't it ?
Do you know how I could redirect sound (mic and phone) from the pc running flrig and connected to the rig, to a second pc (all on linux of course) ? It is certainly something with pulseaudio ??

I see that several, here, run a station in house (attics or better place for cable/antenna) and access it remotely from a different room.
I don't know how to do it, the best solution, for having access to 2m/70cm band, in voice mode.
I have a TM-V71E, a baofeng UV-5R, a FT-65E, a PC and an antenna on the roof with a cable to upper room of the house.
TM-V71K permit remote access but not the V71E 😕

I've decided to Just Do It

I've pushed the code for to a public repo.

Complex 19 is my static site generator for simultaneous and which I use for my personal site:

I'm sure there is much wrong with it and don't expect it to be of any use to anyone else (I haven't even picked a license!)

When you write a technical post on your personal website, please, be sure your page displays the publication date.
It is very painful to read an article without knowing if information are valid or obsolete 😞

Ouch !
Some QSL cards are... uh... special !

(don't blame the operator, he is 80 yo and keeps on operate his radio, even in digimode, so big respect to him !)

I've ordered some PowerPole connectors and distribution racks for the shake and field operation... I hope it will be good stuff, because it's a bit expensive 😕

I am VERY happy and proud to announce the public release of the "OpenBSD Webzine" !

#openbsd #bsd

Finally, I sell my FT-790R and its linear amplifier FL-7010.
430-440MHz FM/SSB/CW
Split +/-1.6MHz
Tone 1750Hz
TX 2.5W and 10W with PA
In very good condition despite its age
Manual supplied too
(Hoping it isn't inappropriate to post an ad here)

I wonder if a Planet (as defined here: ) dedicated to radio amateur would be a good idea ? 🤔

I've re-tested my old FT-790R and its 10W linear PA a FL-7010. It works like a charm !

The next Yaesu FTM-6000 mobile looks like I was looking for, few months ago.
A simple VHF/UHF device (without c4fm or other digital mode) with 50w devs have redesigned their website... but if it always looks old school 😳

I am a little ashamed to use software to operate in Morse code but I'm near 50yo and I think I will definitively not be able to learn CW 😥
