Got a ping that Ham Radio equipment on Amazon was locked down. I went over, and sure enough, get "This item requires special handling and cannot be shipped to your selected location".


Hi! I've updated my profile to point at my (self owned) primary Mastodon instance.

On the ham front, I (barely) still have HF/VHF/UHF capabilities, all modes.

Primary ham work, when I can, is a next-generation packet protocol. I presented an early version of it to the Utah digital ham conference about a year ago, but simulations showed it to be fatally flawed. A substantially revamped protocol is in development.
