One of y'all shared a spreadsheet or table of #qrp radios a while back. I remember it as an image or PDF. Could you share it again?
Using Linux or Raspberry Pi for Field Day and looking for a logger?
Here is the archive of yesterday's SDF Amateur Radio Club weekly NET on #echolink node 9229. The question was "Do you use Mastodon to promote amateur radio?" and in particular I mentioned mastodon.radio a few times during my check in as there are many stations across the #fediverse gathering here and registering their call signs. You can listen to the archive here:
There were 11 check ins and 2 new stations.
I may have asked this before. Anyone #onHere have experience volunteering for endurance events (ultra runs, etc.) and want to share thoughts?
I'm reaching out to local hams about volunteering, but we also have long events with sometimes low numbers. Could be long periods between racers coming through. Is this a turnoff for volunteers, or shouldn't I worry about it?
Working on the new blog post today. The most notable product covered in this 1986 "Chronicles" episode was probably QuoTrek, which might have been the first commercially available device for receiving wireless data.
QuoTrek relied on FM radio signals to receive live stock quotes. In the early 1980s, the FCC had approved the use of subbands to transmit data. Basically, local FM radio stations would piggyback the QuoTrek data on their signals.
It works! Whipped up a bash script to start with screen and detach:
screen -dmS arNetSked python3 /home/pi/arNetSked/arNetSked.py -s ./arNetSked/example_sked.cfg -c W1CDN-1 -h 192.168.0.30 -p 8001
Slowly finding time for radio. Jack of many interests. NW Minnesota, USA.
