Good morning. #Mastodon! Especially to the mastodon.radio crowd!
I hope all of you have a great day!
Beyond that, I will be starting a new radio journalism project in 2019 which I have decided to call "The Radio Intelligence News Service" (T.R.I.N.S) or (R.I.N.S.)
RINS will present current-day and a historical journalism focused on the intersect between amateur radio and shortwave radio with national security & intelligence.
I'll be relying largely on FOIA records pulled from the archives of various federal agencies, U.S. Military Historical Information Commands, and NARA (archives.gov)
I am the co-author of the Chicago Scanner and CrimeisDown Scanner Listening Guide / Media Style Guide for Chicago Public Safety Reporting
I also run Chicago-One News (Chicago-1) which focuses on long-form public safety news reporting on major violent crimes and other major public safety incidents. Chicago-1 also covers historical events pulled from law enforcement records within Chicago, Cook County, and U.S. Federal Agencies with field offices in Chicago.
Here's a summery intro to get to know me:
I am formerly of PCJ Radio International, and Shortwave America before that.
Radio has been a passion and love of mine since my young days, and I was once very connected to Rabbi Doug (Doug Zelden) of the Kevin Matthews Show, and Ed Tyll over at WLUP AM-1000 in the golden age of Chicago radio.
The late WV9MJS (Mitch) and AB9PS (Paul) were two of my closest friends. Paul was well-known at WFMT - FM radio, and WTTW - TV.
WSJT-X 2.0 GA has dropped. Let's hope for a swift and orderly adoption!
… and the all important release notes:
Perfect if your serial ports keep swapping over when you reboot or plug/unplug things, just use these in places of /dev/ttyUSB$no.
I don't know when this magical feature appeared but it beats messing with dev rules. 💻📻
I'm here because screw Twitter and their penchant for banning people without reason, and refusing to give some sort of evidence for which rule was violated & how their rules were allegedly violated!
Also, screw Jack and his bourgie liberal team of clowns for each bit of their hypocrisy #FuckYouTwitter
