Lots of folks are maintaining a thin shell of calm over a warm gooey center of freaking the hell out. It's coming out in weird, tangential ways. Folks getting mad over irrelevancies and minutiae.

Empty your lungs. Breathe in. Be patient with your friends. We need each other.

@freemo there are plenty of people with LESS time.

e.g. full time job working from home + children to care for (who would otherwise be at school during the day)

@welshpixie @ehashman but that doesn't make sense either.

2.4GHz is around 50% of 5GHz, but I'd still not put my head in a microwave oven. (and would have no worries about my laptop using 5GHz WiFi.)

Signal power is a more significant issue for rf burns than frequency, and those don't happen at any meaningful distances.

@ed_packet @F1RUM oh poo.

I've just been trying it and it seems you can't have a multi-user install :(

Hate pizza stores that use postcode for delivery, we fall outside all the postcode delivery locations for every pizza shop I know online, but they all deliver if you ring.


But I can't browse the menu online unless I select a store that will deliver!

@F1RUM I've been considering setting up cloudlog for mastodon.radio users.


Would it be useful or interesting to you?


@LuigiEsq oh, I thought it was a joke because often people think of paintings when you say art, and those are hung on walls.

@dk3ip do you find you need a good counterpoise/radial/something for the end fed?

Thanks for the book tip

@dk3ip welcome!

I'd like to know more about your stealth equipment,it sounds interesting!

Hello, I‘m 46 years old and a ham radio enthusiast since 1999. I used to make homemade and equipment, love and . Today I mostly work with stealth equipment or portable.

Hi! I'm going by Dubby here. I'm a ham located on the front range of the Rocky mountains in the US. Currently having fun exploring on VHF, listening in on websdr.org, and practicing . Want to get more into operating on the air and playing with radio security.

Please welcome @dk3ip, @Dubby, and @RalphKatz !

All, please toot an so we can get to know you 😀 add some hashtags too so we know what interests you.

You can find more people in the instance in the directory

And this list of radio amateurs on mastodon, may be of interest: pad.dc7ia.eu/p/radio_amateurs_

And there are apps!

@MacLemon I agree, modern consoles suck for casual gamers, especially when you add on all the accounts and subscriptions for online play (and the game trying to connect every time when you don't have an account and don't want to play online)

Furry, fursuit, inflatable 

Hmm. Thrown up a 20m aerial and all I can hear are contest stations, but at least I can hear them!

Let me know if you would like to try a sked on 20m!

I need to fix the aerial if I want 40m
And a different setup completely for much else and more long term operation.
