Written a little python to watch my WSJT-X adi log file and push new contacts to cloudlog automatically.

Will probably post a blog about it with code later...

Oooh, you can use rigctld-wsjtx to toggle a GPIO pin for PTT, with WTJT-X

So, you could use a PI (or whatever) without yet another serial device, although you'd want some external circuitry i think.

I think I'll stick to my working setup for now! And pronouncing rigctld "rigcuttle d" 😂

Has anyone got a self hosted jitsi meet working with so people can dial in?

This is seriously the most exciting thing I've done with

I only regret wasting so much time and effort on trying to get a homebrew interface working when I could have been having contact and not getting bored and frustrated.

FT8 on 20m is basically impossible with a raspberry pi 3

By time it has decoded all the signals you're halfway into the next time slot!

To be fair, there are a LOT of signals to decode...

Given zoom has purchased @keybase - should I remove the integration with

Well that's exciting.

Just had a QSO with K2TQC, which is the first contact with the USA I've had for ... years.

THIS is why people like me want things like FT8, even if it is "ruining "

A experimental IGate was tested today with bi-directional messaging. It's still missing a lot, but it works, was able to do Xastir to APRS-IS to HamBSD to RF with the Yaesu handheld.


It's towel day soon.

Make sure you've got a nice towel on your shoulder on the 25th of May.

Exploring FT8, JS8CALL after a long inactivity. In the mood to try ARDOP w/OFDM (gARIM or RMS)
