@bamfic ah, OK. Going the other way.
I thought it might be useful / easy to have unified account for radio related mastodon and matrix, but I'm not sure anymore!

I think matrix.org looks interesting.
I wonder if the radio community would like to try it for "engineering comms" (e.g. "I can't copy you on 40m, shall we try 80?" and "are you free for a sked on 23cm tomorrow?")

Here is a poll to see if anyone else would be interested!

@bamfic ooh, interesting. Please let me know more, if you want to!

Does anyone know if it's possible (and by extension, how) to master the accounts on a server from ?
I.e. You would have to have an account on mastodon.radio to log into the matrix server, and it would use the same credentials.

@diodelass could I commission specific lengths and colours? I have a network wall that looks pants with the wrong length cables 😔

@m0puh @iona I have considered installing / making matrix.radio or something using @matrix but not sure if people actually want it.
Also, I don't think you can sync/master users from mastodon...

Welcome everyone, i just start studying HAM radio: looking forward to have a license !

@vertigo iirc this is a conscious decision to be different to the other social networks. The idea being it's hard to "go viral" but it is easy to connect with people.

Obviously your experience will vary!

Currently in a hotel room in Maryland. I wasted no time setting up my simple, compact portable ham radio station. #AmateurRadio #HamRadio

@xgess
Hey! Apparently you are the person to reach out to for help doing the mastodon + keybase thing?
I thought it "just works" but apparently not.
Can you point me in the right direction please?

It's happened.
I have someone requesting to join mastodon.radio who's reason looks fine, but doesn't mention radio at all.
I need more information, and I don't think I can do that other than by sending an email directly...
It could be genuine, or it could be genuine looking spam.

Any ideas @Gargron ?

Hello all, I'm a fairly recent ham, licensed in 2016 with a General Class. I'm working on getting into SDR and digital modes, but I've not gotten up a decent antenna yet. I'm a software developer, husband, father to an 11 y/o son and a bad musician.

@iona ah, I've been to Newark on a day trip the last couple of years.
I'll try and remember to toot if/when I plan to go this year and maybe we can have a QSO in real life 😆

@iona especially as it's entirely possible I want to grab that driver on a headless system using wget!

Oh hi Internet.

Just a little request ... can you stop using javascript to make your website load please?

I'm bored of following a link to blank white screens that magically become a normal html website after I un-block javascript for your domain.
