@Shufei This reminds me of a fun story.
Once upon a time it was illegal for US amateur stations to make contact with their Cuban counterparts.
One day a US station hears a Cuban station down on HF (I forget what band). US station says to his buddy "It's a real shame we're not allowed to talk to Cuba because I'm hearing <callsign> 59 here."
Cuban station then says to nobody in particular "It's a shame we cannot talk to the US because I hear <callsign> 59 here."
No regs were broken that day.
Can we please, please – PLEASE! not make the nonsensical US date format month/day/year the default in applications? 🤦♂️
PRE 👏 TTY 👏 PLEASE
And to all users of that format: it makes no sense, it's counter-intuitive, it makes collaboration frustrating, it introduces inconsistencies and errors... Just stop. Please. Use international standards.
(And don't get me started on your other units of weights, volumes and distances. Bloody hell.)
Boost if I'm right.
Does anyone live stream themselves operating #amateurRadio?
Would it be interesting?
Sure I could learn a lot from an experienced op
For those of us struggling to be “productive”
I want to run a distributed film night for some friends, the kind where we all watch the same film at the same time but in different places.
I'm sure there is a proper name for this.
And I'm sure I've seen other groups on the fediverse do it.
Are there any tips?
Is there a specific platform for it that works great, or do we all just "get the dvd" and chat using the same platforms as usual?
I think if done right this could be a really useful technique to keep social bonds during isolation.
I just released version 2.2.1 or Morselino, my Morserino-32 fork. This release contains a bug fix for a small glitch in the way new games are handled in Morse Tennis.
You can find the binary in zipped form at
The source code is at the same spot. Since this is a bug fix only,
the documentation has not changed.
I just released Morselino-32, a fork of the Morserino-32 firmware. The version is 2.1.0, because it is based on version 2.0 of Morserino.
It has a new mode for learning head copying and supports SOS as a prosign.
