Pinned toot

@N0TIA hello and welcome!

If you want to toot an introduction with the hashtag "introductions" I'll give it a boost and see if we can get you some more followers 😁

Also, don't forget there are various mastodon clients for android and ios (and desktop)

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.

: /dev/serial/by-id/ has persistently named serial devices on .

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. πŸ’»πŸ“»

Taking another step to move away from the centrally controlled, corporate Web.
Created an account with @Tutanota, which promises end to end encryption of emails. 😁
At €1 a month I'll probably end up paying for it so I can use my own domains with it, assuming that I can overlook the bugs in the android client πŸ˜”
(small things mostly, like I changed the colour scheme when I started, now I can't work out how to change it back / to something different)

@KD4AEN hello and welcome! Your first toot sums up why I started this instance quite nicely...

Good morning! That last retoot is me - I thought it would be fun to be on an instance of hams. I'm relatively new (got my technician in October, my general yesterday) but I'm already having a great time and learning so many new things. I'm in school for spacecraft engineering and I get to use all sorts of cool radio whatsits to relay data to satellites. I look forward to getting to chat with you, whether on Mastodon or on the bands.

An #introduction! I'm Wallace! I'm an undergrad in Kentucky studying space science. I operate a 21-M parabolic dish so I can talk to satellites!

My career interests are #radio #electronics and #engineering, but I'm also into:
#hamradio
#religion
#sustainability
#opensource
#language

I feel like there must be a way to smash together the old school and new... Are there any good servers for in ?
I weirdly want to try and make it possible to read this instance over the gopher protocol and this seems like a stupid but fun way to do it.

As encouraged, here’s my

I’m James, 26, he/him pronouns. I’m hoping getting involved with this place will prompt me to finish up some projects I’ve sidelined. Here’s what’s on deck:
-MEF-1 antenna tuner ordered from EA3GCY
-10m small transmitting loop (let’s see how a coax capacitor works!)
-DDS controlled Pixie (just an experiment)
-A LPF/PA shield for Rpitx (preferably on 2m, most of the projects out there are for HF)

#Time for a #reintroduction

Cishet #Jewish white male well over the age of 50 standard years old. Currently living in #Boston #Massachusetts. By profession I'm a consultant in the financial services industry, primarily doing Java and .NET along with business analysis.

I'm likely to toot about #uspol from the left side of the spectrum. I'm also a #HamRadio #HamRadio operator, primarily doing HF portable and CW. Oh, and a #ScienceFiction fan who helps run #Worldcon.

#introduction

Howdy! I'm a fairly new ham (got my General a couple months ago, and my Tech a month before that). Looking forward to getting more involved in the community!

hi if you see this will you boost it please, i'm testing my instance

this is a full participation activity, pls #boost

Yummy! Black Friday goodies arrived. I couldn't resist 128gb micro sd cards for less than 12p per gig.

I love the tiny, expanding Gopher network. People hosting small public access shell servers, sometimes with only 128MB RAM, sometimes more, access via a restricted shell, sometimes with git, sometimes with a weird publishing system, all of them with Gopher hosting. 😍
gopher://cosmic.voyage
gopher://zaibatsu.circumlunar.
gopher://republic.circumlunar.
gopher://consensus.circumlunar
gopher://dome.circumlunar.spac
It feels like the old days!

Enjoying exploring the network ... I wonder if we could set up a gopher server to be accessible via RF / ? I know there are allocations of IP addresses specifically for packet radio ... could be an interesting project.
