I've been having issues with my phone being connected to WiFi but not being able to connect to anything.

It's fine to start with, then stops working.
Android does not say the WiFi has no internet connection, but I can't load anything even from the local network when it happens.

Can anyone suggest a way to debug this? Maybe an app that can test various things like DNS gateway etc?

Yes I have rebooted. Turning WiFi off and on again restores connections, but not for long. Other devices are ok

@F1RUM would be my go-to on amateur radio in France, but we have a few users on mastodon.radio who may be able to help if you were interested in getting an amateur radio licence.

@alex and the British prime minister is charing a meeting about it today.

Because football is more important than covid, brexit, the climate crisis, child poverty and food banks, etc etc etc

@KN4LIA @filkerdave @jkb and I think it depends on the relationship individual humans have with a specific environment.

If I'm just visiting a place of nature that is mostly left alone by humans I will follow the "leave only footprints take only photos" approach.

But the author of that thread is highlighting that humans are not a visitor to the earth and we have a greater responsibility across time, space, and numbers.

I see humans as caretakers of nature.

@jollysea assuming it's an encoding issue could you create a symlink with the mangled name to the correct name?

Or, obviously there is the classic option of "don't have a weird name" πŸ™ƒ

Any opinions about FT-857? An old one is up for sale and I am wondering if I can use it for my SSB/CW/FT8 operations..

@SetecAstronomy @Harena @woozle a possibility tidier solution would be to use a "magnetic USB cable" of the sort that has a detachable connection that you leave in the device and a cable that connects to that via magnets, like the Mac mag charger

So for the guy who about 20 years ago failed out of college who swore he would never go back to school, yesterday I graduated with a Masters degree in Computer science... I know not so humble brag, but It is an accomplishment I am a little proud of... :)

@dj3ei there is a "report to the original server" option during the reporting flow so it should all "just work"

Every April 18, radio amateurs worldwide take to the airwaves in celebration of World Amateur Radio Day. It was on this day in 1925 that the International Amateur Radio Union was formed in Paris...


If you get a random DM from someone with a bunch of numbers in their name, please don't click the link. Instead, please report it (under the "..." menu) for spam/phishing, and forward the report to the originating server.

Thanks :)
