I am from Germany. did my License A in 2017, but as I lived in a big city, I had not space for any kind of rig.
So I used handhelds on U/VHF and played with SDRs. I recently moved to the country side and plan to build a shack here.
Besides ham, I work in IT, but my main focus, attention and thoughts are on the developing climate catastrophe currently.
Hence I am interested also in thinking #BeyondHam beyond the normal path we go as operators.

Damn, it was misty yesterday.
Dear people on mastodon.radio,
you can support this instance if you like by making a recurring donation here: https://liberapay.com/M0YNG
It is close to reach a sustaining level soon and it would be great if we can relieve the person(s) running the instance a bit.
73 and all the rest
Here's a poll. We want to reproduce the poll math bug. So listen carefully and follow the instructions.
Check how many people have voted before. If it is an odd number, select 1st option, 2nd option for an even number. If you are the first to vote, select the 2nd option.
Please ignore 3rd and 4th options. We want to keep the number of votes for 1st and 2nd equal.
Look what came!
I have @alex stickers!
Would you like one?
I think it would cost me around £2 to send internationally, so if you were to donate at least that much and give me an address to send it to I will try my best to send you a free sticker to say thank you for helping to keep our instance running.
PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org should work...
You can make an ongoing contribution via https://liberapay.com/M0YNG/ too
Thanks again to @Anna for her great art!
LifePo4 and long storage... Finally found some information (via the HRCC Discord channel):
To the ham radio operators among us: Do you log each and every QSO? I am doing this at the moment but it feels a bit more like a burden than benefitial. I am thinking of switching from an electronic log to a paper log which is not focused on QSOs but on the other OM/YL. An idea would be a ring binder with custom paper sheets where one or more pages are dedicated to one OM/YL. On this page i would take notes on what has been discussed, when and with what reports.
