One of the new features of mastdon v3 is the ability to list silenced/suspended.

users of can see them here:

Bonjour @14FRS3613 !

@14FRS3613 please toot an so we can get to know you 😀 add some hastags too so we know what interests you.

You can find more people in the instance in the directory
(you can opt into this too once you have 10 "friends", and add tags to your profile) and the local timeline.

And this list of radio amateurs on mastodon, may be of interest:

And there are apps!

Happy tooting!

@Miredly it would probably fly lower too, so you'd probably get awesome views too!

@kr4dio @m0puh same. I'm trying to move myself but it is not something that's easy to do!

Personally I chose tutanota, mostly due to cost.
I have multiple domains and multiple users, and the cost of proton mail added up too quickly (although I agree it is probably better)

Tutanota doesn't currently support + addresses, which has caused me issues, so watch out for that if you use them ( I just have a catchall directed at my inbox)

I've had a ticket open with BrandMeister since 26th August and not had anything happen to it.

Does anyone know Mark Robinson or Rudy (PD0ZRY)? They are the two people who need to "approve" it apparently.

Or any other way to kick this?

@Shufei probably, it's just python so shouldn't be hard to deploy elsewhere.

Although it's pretty dumb, just watches the aprx log file for changes. Not sure how it would work with any other aprs software.


heh, you don't want to follow it yet.

under active development so will do stupid things, and it's VERY chatty! One of the local stations is sending weather data every 5 minutes... I'm not sure how to handle that..?

Think I've "derisked" the main bits of going from RF to fediverse.

Next step will be different message types, then I'll try handling actual messages.

@n0btc I'm not sure where the breakpoint for theat button is.

I know QOTO have a large character limit, but can't find any good examples right now!

@n0btc some instances have changed the default character limit.
might be that?

@DC7IA they do not afaik

Also, if you have a contact less card (debit or credit) that works the same and costs the same as oyster.

@andrew I'd focus on what and why first, and then what you will talk about.

Not sure if people will care about asterisk etc. in advance of the talk, but if you want to include it, put it last?

Maybe something like :
Where I live there is basically no phone signal, so I made my own phone network!
In this talk I'll explain how I did it, and the challenges of running the phone network for the largest furry conference in [place-name]

@DC7IA doesn't look like it. I've been unwell this week and not found anyone else locally who wants to go. Seems a waste of a car journey for just me.

@vertigo you're obviously very welcome on, you don't have to only talk about radio here!

Any questions, just ask

@freakazoid you'd obviously be very welcome, but don't feel any pressure to segregate things if you don't want to.

Nice explanation of how a post reaches one of your timelines.

@sp6mr hmm. Interesting idea. I think it's worth considering the risk we're trying to mitigate, and the chance of it happening.

If a profile starts to post nonsense, how harmful is that?
(I know it depends!)

What is the chance of it happening?

Is it worth making it harder to post a message?

Would we want to let people know that a message had been posted "out of band"?

Could we dm a new password to the user automatically? Would that undo the security we've added?

Is any of this worth it?

@bcshort hub is owned by Microsoft, quite a few people moved to lab when it happened
