What is Mastodon - PeerTube on Nomagic
peertube.nomagic.uk/videos/wat

It's worth noting that mastodon is not the only software that can do this!

We call this the fediverse, or federated universe.

In an excellent demonstration of this, this video is hosted using peertube, which is also part of the fediverse.

Newbie ham, learning CW with a mixture of tools and progs, trying to get good enough to use a TS-120S on the air.

Not-newbie coder. Linux and Mac. Golang, Python, C++, C, Bash

Hardware fiddling. Arduino, Morserino-32, ham kits.

Only learnt about Mastadon's existence yesterday, so please forgive procedure errors for a while :-)

@m0stq I use screen a lot! But not for this... I found the arduino software could do what I wanted more reliability than anything else I tried.

@n0btc I see! Seems like a good idea to me, I can see the appeal and value

@n0btc can you even get an atomic wristwatch these days?

@es0mhi @F1RUM aprs and packet can work over hf too, although slower than vhf, no Internet required.
I've not done it myself though.

I have experienced your issues with js8 messages, I've never retrieved a message I was told was available, and no one has confirmed receiving one I left for them.

Everyone, Please welcome @N6DTE and @m0stq !

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

(you can opt into this too once you have 10 "friends", and add tags to your profile) and the local timeline.

An #amateurradio question: I've read that some hams turn the RF gain down to noise level and turn the AF gain (a.k.a the audio volume for non-hams) up in order to reduce the noise (mostly atmospheric, but also QRM) the radio receives. For people who do this, how well does this work?

I've never operated that way in my almost 12 years of being a ham, but I'm willing to try it. Anything that can potentially reduce noise and/or bring up signals is worth trying in my opinion.

#introduction because it's been a while

Ham radio. Science fiction. Life. Politics. Un peu le français. Auch ein bisschen Deutsch. Charlotte & Jackson Hole. Not particularly religious but unapologetically Jewish. I randomly interact with interesting roots. If I send you a follow request it's because you're interesting.

I'm probably not flirting with you.

ham radio stuff 

@andrej even if not! Sounds like a great place to have a network connected radio for remote operations...

I have just received this beautiful ham prefixes map from Aliy UA6YW :-) I love the design and colors. Aliy included a little extra CQ zone map as a gift. Love the nice Russian stamps, too. It took ages to make it through the mail, but in the end I really recommand Aliy's map store at : www.kuisokov.ru

Oops.

Sorry everyone, the server ran out of disk space because cron had stopped running a cleanup script correctly.

We should be back now 😁

@conor hmm, it is basically finished and I need to know how I'm going to mount it before I can do the last bits (ie power, external connectors) so sooner would be better in this case.

I'll remember your suggestion for future projects I hope!

Where do you buy project boxes in the UK these days?

As in, small plastic box suitable for mounting electronic projects.

I don't really want the postie to bring me an empty plastic box, but without maplin?
It's tempting to just buy some food storage thing from the supermarket!

Hello, all. I live in . I'm interested in . I have a couple of 5 watt HTs and a 25 watt QYT KT8900D mobile rig in the car.

I'm also interested in , , , , and a bunch of other stuff.

Everyone, Please welcome @KF0BRS !

@drwho thanks for saving me in the future, I hope I remember this valuable lesson!
