This morning I activated peak EA5/AT-099 "Serra Mitjana" for the first time. It was also my first time doing some from , very QRSs and with a rather bulky MFJ-550 straight key and a whip antenna. My contacts were very nice in slowing down for me!

Remembering when we were playing to track noaa satellites with the family. Just a simple v-dipole and a were enough to decode some apt images. Nice experience that I recommend to everybody. Thinking to jump to QFH antenna and an enhancement on the reception chain, like @ea3ihx!

You have a Twitter account?

Maybe it's time to publish a tweet to other Ham buddies to tell that there is a cool Mastodon instance focused on radio? Don't you think so?

hey everyone. i'm adae and i cling onto art cuz life tries to whip me off into a black void of despair. isn't that fun?

i make all kinds of art but you'll probably be seeing a lot of paintings and drawings here.

feel free to interact if you want to talk about technique, inspiration, decolonization, and the weird metaphysical shit in art and life itself i guess (esp. if you're black!!!). that's all so let me tighten my grip before i get flung off

#introductions Hi there! 👋

I decided to join after half a year contemplating switching to FOSS and GNU/Linux - the whole whatsapp controversy finally pushed me!

I'm a complete Linux/GNU newbie and I hope that I can learn the inner workings of it all. - If you have any recommendations for learning resources please let me know! - Right now i'm using Linux Journey and YouTube videos

I am using Pop_OS! - I love it - but hope to move to Arch once I get the fundamentals down 👍

See ya! 😁

Hi all! I'm a faculty member in the School of Planning and Public Affairs at the University of Iowa. I do research on bicycle/pedestrian safety and travel behaviour. Previously worked as an engineer in various aspects of aviation.

When I'm not working I like riding bikes, flying gliders and doing a bit of sim racing. (transportation bleeds into my hobbies too I guess)

I've mainly avoided social media in the past, but going to give it a shot here.

We have over 300 users on mastodon.radio now, and over 100 count as "active" (which is an amazing ratio!)

This is incredible, I have no intention of this becoming a "big server", but it's great to have so many people engaged in radio and active in our community.

I wonder though...
How did you all find this server?
Why did you choose it over others?
Is there anything we can do to make your experience here better?

Hello everybody, I am Joan. Following the , I research in different topics related to satellite communications. In my available time, I develop some code for systems. Other topics that I am interested are , , devices, among others.

Looking forward to exchange experiences with all of you. Thank you for the welcome @M0YNG!
