Pinned toot

It was suggested I post, and pin, a toot with information about what it costs to run this instance.
I like this, I want to be transparent, and I think it's important that the community have trust and confidence in me, and the hosting.

Currently the costs looks like this:

* £112.50 a year for a VPS
* €25.00 a year for the domain name

All media (avatars, etc.) are sotred on the server, we use 20G of 40G so far.

I'm planning to promote mastodon.radio at the next @G5BK meeting (this Thursday).

Does anyone have suggestions on how best to "sell" it to our fellow hams?

Playing radio today with my portable tripod (an all-aluminum stand usually used for scene lighting on emergency vehicles). My Comet GP-3 (VHF/UHF) antenna is mounted instead. Tripod is about 12' (3.66m) where the antenna mounts.

@wreckitralpholdhamhands Hello and welcome!
I see you have already spotted my normal welcome toot :D

Please let me know if there is anything else I can help with!

Hi, I am Guido, LU8EQ from Argentina. I've just signed up and started exploring this new world.
So making first toot for is a great way to begin with.
I really like vintage/classic ham radio gear.

I use for my daily browsing, and development (nothing beats the MDN!)

But I'd like to test for chrome(ium) but don't want to install Google Chrome.

Does anyone know how to get a reliable, release version, of for OSX?
Ideally I'd like to get it from something resembling an "official" source, and I'd like an actual release version, not something built off master.

Thanks in advance!

A heads up - I'll be QRV from KFF-3026 on April 13 and 14 for Texas State Parks on the Air - I'd love to work you. Check the usual dx spot networks for my spot.

Just signed up here, so posting as suggested.

My QTH has made me a big fan of limited space antennas including magnetic loops, along with remote tuning and control.

Big fan of SSTV, packet radio, phone, and some digital modes.

Waiting for things to warm up here in Toronto so I can spend a little more time outside getting antennas set up properly.
