The TS180S is working really well with the G5RV antenna as a receiver. Still haven't transmitted. Fired everything up this morning to find the microphone didn't work (using a transceiver that has been in storage for a decade). Found a broken wire just behind the plug, after some stripping and soldering now have a working microphone.
The G5RV antenna I built (exclusively from parts I found in the shed) is up. Sitting at around 11m in the closest tree to the house. Have run coax in through the wall and connected it to Kenwood TS180S, tuned in 80m, 40m, 15m and 10m. I now have my very own station! Yes that means this household has 2 separate stations so we can use simultaneously. Now for my first contact on the new setup.
Someone in my feed mentioned installing a linux distribution on all their family computers because they rarely had to do any followup visits, it just ran no hassles. Can anyone suggest what distro it might of been as I cant find the toot, It wasn't mint as they suggested mint needed followup attention.

@ChrisWere I'd be interested in a video on how to choose a cloud provider. I keep reading positive comments about next cloud, not sure where to start.

@Tutanota I noticed you are developing access to email offline. Would you please add calendar and contacts offline access as well? I work in an area with no 4G signal so can't access email, contacts or calendar. It's annoying being asked a question and having to say I'll answer once I'm back in signal range. This sometimes happens in rural Australia.
