Happy tooting!

I'm still not sure how to use

I know how to activate a reflector - I place a private call to a specific ID and the repeater / hotspot tells me about the connection.

But, general talk groups? Do I just set the group, and it works? Maybe? How do I know?
Does it only work if the repeater/hotspot has this "enabled"? (how would I know?)

I can't find a clear answer anywhere online...

I get an email from the 🚀 when the 🛰️ flies above my house, operators can connect🎙️ to the ISS crew.

While 50 years ago, the very first human being walked 🚶‍♂️on the 🌙...

Has anyone on mastodon.radio tried the new "not advanced" user interface?

If you pop open your preferences, look for the "Enable advanced web interface" checkbox. Make sure it is un-checked (empty) and save your settings (bottom of the page)

Let me know what you think!

Contacts so far at the @G5BK "on the air evening" have been

* G3VKV via a satellite usb + online sdr/ 2m fm Cross band
* @G3YYH via AM across the car park

just a reminder that instance admins will never ask for your password for any reason! there's no reason for us to need it

so if someone ever DMs you and asks for a password, report that DM! It's definitely a scam

This is a carrot flower.

I didn't pull them all up last year, and these have grown. Some are almost 2m tall.

I guess I should get lots of seeds this way!

I wonder. Does anyone know how to get the recordings OFF the AnyTone 878?

It's quite interesting, and a little bit useful, but almost completely pointless if you can only listen to them on the radio itself.

K3NYJ has just saved my sanity, this list of DMR call groups, combined with the actual number you need to dial to connect to it is the the magic I couldn't find elsewhere!

I'm looking to make a few changes as I prepare for a potential transition.

One of the things I want to change is my identity here on the fediverse. I have a new name in mind, and I'd like to get rid of the picture of the TV mast and have a picture of me that reflects my gender identity in a way that a photograph right now wouldn't.

To that end, I'd like to commission someone to do a profile picture for me. Does anyone have any recommendations? Boosts are fine.

Thank for all the replies on this toot!

Seems like it works more or less like I suspected.
Sadly I don't have any convenient land borders I can try it with nearby...

I have a question!

When I travel to another CEPT country, I can operate using a reciprocal license, e.g. As DE/M0YNG OR EI/M0YNG

How does this apply to ? do I need to register a new ID?

What about ? Do I need to change my callsign? Will things like aprs.fi understand it's still/also me?

Would a message to M0YNG-5 also get delivered to EI/M0YNG-5?
Would anyone watching me cross a border see me stop and a new thing appear? Or one thing carry on?
