Thank you very much for this TG I will jump on this week.
OpenGD77 is supported (with variation) on other radios such as the Baofeng DM-1801 / 860, RD-5R / DM-5R, GD-77s (no screen model hotspot mode only), and Tytera MD-760.
I’m noticing something emerge in the fediverse that probably shouldn’t be a surprise but caught my cynical ass off-guard: citizenship.
People proud of the community their instance provides, contributing not only financially, but building shared resources for their fellow netizens, and emotional support, counseling or even just cheerleading.
I genuinely believe that this is the way forward. Small, autonomous but communicating communities building shared resources because it feels good.
Today, I was trying to find (using commercial search engines) information about a topic. Maybe 9 out of 10 or more "relevant" results was about purchasing items related to the topic. Not ads placed in the result page, no, the actual results.
I remember how, when I was younger, I used to marvel at all the information out there on the web. How it was like a giant library.
I scarcely recognize the place now. If you want to search information about a topic you don't go into a mall. But that's what it feels like I'm forced to do.
I remember going to the library and pulling out drawers of index cards to locate the relevant non-fiction shelves with good content on topics I wanted to learn about. Imagine if those index cards had been mixed with cards with advertisements on them. Increasingly diluting the content with junk. That is the web of today.
My local DMR repeater stopped responding 4 days ago. I though my radios were messed up from a recent problem with signal propagation here.
I did some searching and discovered that I was the last person to talk on it. The entire last heard on brandmeister for that repeater is me.
I am a convicted #repeaterheater
Just wanted to drop this link here.
It is an SDR up/down converter.
PCB drawings are on the github.
I am looking for opinions on a beginner HF radio!
I hope to explore the digital modes such as FT8.
I am currently learning CW and studying for my general class licensure.
My budget is $700 max.
I have considered yaesu 857d and 891 also Kenwood ts-480sat.
I have been considering ICOM 7100 as it has many bands included and also a well documented tutorial for IF output modification.
Thank you ahead of time!
Here are 2 things I have been looking at.
I had to jump off, I have 3 kids.
The 2 boys were being too wild.
Infant on my arm.
I'll prolly jump on TG 23514 later today
When I will become cw operator, perhaps I will look for a mini HF mono band for use it in field, a cheap equipment !
Let me keep concentration on morse learning for now !
