seems to happen mostly on 40 and 80 m. The QSO party ends Sunday 19 UTC. I would like to activate 30 m a bit, for an hour or so somewhere Sunday 9-14 UTC. Anybody would like to set up a sked, so I'm not the "caller in the desert"? Choose an hour!

Not so far from this virtual award !
Any operators from Denmark, Latvia, Lithuania, Slovakia, Moldova, Ireland, Albania, Iceland... here ?

We could schedule a QSO ( would be easier)


Hey everyone, a supernova just went off in Cassiopeia!!!! Right now it is in the early stage so only visible by telescope but after a few days it is likely to be visible to the naked eye. Supernovas are fairly rare so might want to make some time to see this one!

To me as a poc, this shit is depressing and terrifying because they allowed them to go INTO THE CAPITOL BUILDING unimpeded, showing just how deep this system is entrenched in white supremacy. Who's gonna protect us, apparently fuckin nobody

Logging in here for the first time in a while, folks still using it?

Here's the RSGB's statement on the 2m WRC process:

tl;dr: please don't sign any random badly worded petitions, we're on it.

I think (as others have said) continuing to pay the RSGB for membership is probably the best course of action for now.

For anyone looking for the comet tonight, it's currently close to M45 in the Taurus constellation. Not possible to see with the naked eye though, at least from my location. Tried with binoculars and *might* have observed it but I'm not so sure.

Looks like 10m is open folks, at least for datamodes.

A packet radio chat protocol with support for digital signatures and binary compression. Like IRC over radio waves, for the Baofeng UV-5R 4-watt radio.

Was an SWL in the 1980s, got licensed in 1994 as EI9EKB, and then M0HMK when I was living in the UK. As I had let my Irish licence lapse I was assigned EI8GVB when I renewed it in the 2000s. In the '90s was active with my club on field days, contests and special events. These days my main interests are QRP operation, datamodes and building things (software/hardware). I'm especially interested in SDRs at the moment and am (slowly) learning Morse.

In case anyone worked OJ0C on RTTY today, looks like there is a pirate operating

No luck working OJ0C so far today, and due to a local thunderstorm here in EI I've now had to unplug the antenna :-(

I'm QRV in Malta this week (although not today due to imminent thunderstorm), was very happy to work OJ0C yesterday, hopefully I can grab them again from EI on Friday.
