Anyone with experience of and/or ?

I've got an odd situation where one specific number on a trunk, when dialled will send an SMS to the phone saying it has connected.

Only happens once on linphone on adroid, but about every 10s on the desk phone.
Which is annoying, as it beeps and blocks all the phone controls until dismissed.
Doesn't appear to do it at all on linphone on my laptop.

Can't spot any relevant settings, and it's only this number (so far?)

Woo, had my first chat on with KA8ZNY and a couple of other people.

Weird having two way audio!

I have observed an interesting interact between mastodon and my email.

People signing up have to be approved, to avoid spam accounts.
This means I get an email every time, with the reason they want to sign up in the email.
In practice, this means I DON'T get an email every time, because spam accounts requests get caught by my email spam filter.

I worry that this means that other legitimate requests, and other mastodon emails get spam filtered too...

Please welcome @KE0WIZ!

OK ok ok. This is so cool!

I can connect my mobile phone via Bluetooth to the desk phone.

This means I can make and receive phone calls on the desk phone, but it's really my mobile phone. (did I say phone enough?)

...I'm not sure why I want this, but it's cool.

I found something that appears to be at least close to what I was looking for here:

hamalert.org

It won't connect to my WiFi, but then it does only support B and G, so I might need to offer it a downgraded option...

Then again, I have a poe injector so hopefully I'll end up with only one cable regardless, either power or network+power.

Apparently it can also be an mp3 player? Because that's a feature office phones always need!

I tried to improve my 1p ebay voip phone.
I replaced the barrel connection to be micro USB, but in the process broke the switch that tells the phone if the handset is up or down.
So I soldered in a manual switch to let me override, but it didn't work, and then I managed to break the pcb trace trying to fix it.

Then I found this cisco SPA525G phone on ebay (for more than 1p!)

What to do with it...
Obviously it's already on my home pbx and

Yet more pointless pager things!

I think I can send APRS messages to my pager now too.

If you'd like to try, send a message to M0YNG-10
and it should appear on my pager πŸ“Ÿ

You know what annoys me most about the incident?
I use them, and I've not received anything about it. Not a single email, notice in the app, nothing at all.
Just more marketing messages.

It really doesn't help me to trust anything about their operations if they don't admit to anything and tell me about it.

Maybe it's because I've never used the affected data centre, but if they don't log anything how would they know?

Just had my first #hamradio HF qso verified on the #lotw log book of the world! I'm having fun exploring HF! Now if I can only point my antenna where I'd like to talk. That would involve convincing my trees to move though! See you on 20m and/or 40m!

just granted my Japanese #amateur #radio license JJ1UYC - I will be operating C4FM, APRS and simplex on hikes around Kanagawa and Kyoto prefectures over the next year.

Yay! I made a pointless thing!

I will now get mastodon notifications via pager! πŸ“Ÿ 🐘 (assuming that the code hasn't crashed and I'm in range of my transmitter)

This would be extra useful if new account requests were available via the api...
