@gnu_f4jbs have you got an adaptor for that? My anyone has a small connector for headphones

@mike sweet. I have at least one pi v1 not in service that could do that.

In fact, I think that it is very different because, on fan dipole, radiations go to the resonant dipole, which has the lowest resistance. With EFHW, the "good" wire has a very high resistance, so, radiations certainty go to the other wire. Am I right ?

Yesterday, I've installed a new homebrew End-Fed Half Wave antenna on the roof, tuned on 18MHz.
This morning, I test it with FT8 (usefull mode for testing).
1st QSO : China
2nd QSO : Japan
and yesterday at night (with very low propagation on 17m), I made a QSO with a Brazilian station !
I think this antenna works 😜

@kelbot bad SD? Bad image copy? Bad power? Anything connected to the gpio or USB?

Everyone, Please welcome @dh1tw !

Please toot an so we can get to know you :alex_grin: add some hashtags too so we know what interests you.

@bleeptrack @coffeverton if you have a French press (cafetiere) you can warm the milk in the microwave (using just the base glass bit) then fluff by vigorously plunging repeatedly

How to migrate Google For Your Domain to normal Gmail

Google has decided to fuck over its early adopters. Way back in 2006, Google announced Google Apps for Your Domain. Basically it was Gmail - but you could use your own domain. No more example@gmail.com now you could be me@example.com. Hurrah!

At the time, they said:

organizations that sign up during


#/etc/ #gmail #google #howto #tutorial

As we rapidly approach February, what does everybody else have planned for their year in ? Maybe some POTA? SOTA? Build some antennas?

@M0TDN @vfrmedia the device has multiple sockets but only one clamp, it seems to reliably work regardless of which socket I use now (although it does associate the data to 0,1, or 2)

@solene I have in the past on my laptop but not the current install.
My main risk is someone accessing data if it is lost/stolen, and as I don't take it anywhere often that's mitigated by keeping it physically with me when I do.
Counter risk is screwing configs up and having to pull the disk and recover data manually which would be harder if encrypted, but that's what backups are for so 🤷

@dch you could add "I've commented inline below" at the top of your reply?

@oe1rsa @do5dos I had many issues with the modems (many, I got a few!) I couldn't reliably get them to talk to each other over VoIP (probably my own fault)

The radio (and tnc and pi) seen in the photo was used to connect to some local mailboxes but they vanished again.

The setup is now a solar powered aprs iGate
