Broke the SMA connector in my #NanoVNA. While connector arrives, temporary setup (photo). Recalibrated. Known SWR readings are now higher. My dipole used to have a nice 1.2:1 minimum around 14 MHz, now 2.4:1. Does anyone have an explanation?
Does anyone know if I can use this device to measure the resonant frequencies of traps for a dipole? (It says it's an antenna analyzer but it looks funky; however, it is much cheaper than traditional-looking analyzers, and reviews suggest that it works): https://www.amazon.com/Seesii-Analyzer-10KHz-1-5GHz-Measuring-Parameters/dp/B08132DJLS/
#introductions Hi there! 👋
I decided to join after half a year contemplating switching to FOSS and GNU/Linux - the whole whatsapp controversy finally pushed me!
I'm a complete Linux/GNU newbie and I hope that I can learn the inner workings of it all. - If you have any recommendations for learning resources please let me know! - Right now i'm using Linux Journey and YouTube videos
I am using Pop_OS! - I love it - but hope to move to Arch once I get the fundamentals down 👍
See ya! 😁
I have commissioned @Atsuko to create a mascot and banner for our instance.
(I'm quite excited by this!)
It would be super if we can help Anna by sharing photos of our shacks.
Please share photos of:
* you in your shack
* just your shack
* you operating a handheld (maybe aiming an aerial?)
(doesn't have to be you, but obviously with permission!)
Plus, I get to see your shacks!

I've found a very complete document entitled "Zen and the Art of radiotelegraphy"
Is there a simpler document explaining how to do #QSO in digimode (MFSK, Olivia and so on) ? I am a bit lost listening this kind of qso mixing phone and cw practices.
Thanks for your help
