Pinned toot

Enjoying , so here's mine:

I got my full license in July, having done my intermediate in Jan and Foundation in Dec, so I consider myself a newbie with an M0 license.

Got into radio to regain some knowledge in electronics (I have a degree in it, but don't use it for work so have forgotten a LOT).

Loving it so far, especially construction and and messing with digital modes. Definitely still a bit mic shy but working on it!

Also, I 100% recommend the Bath based courses!

Virtual Machines for iOS: this could be awesome if it gets off the ground.

iSH is already fun and useful but it'll be good to see what's possible on locked down apple hardware.

Hacking cheap GPS radios to make a long range mesh:

I hadn't seen these ESP32 based GPS modules before:

This powerpole PDU looks cool:

Very similar to the sotabeams version but there's probably not much in the way of obvious variations to make.

Yay Sprat! I have a nice stack of radio magazine now, perfect for when I start to go stir crazy.

This book on SDR from Pragmatic Programmers looks like it might be good: fairly cheap while it's in beta, and pragprog is a really good + DRM free publisher.

Another cool DIY radio blog:

Makes me feel bad for my lack of activity recently!

Spotted in Bath. The new Tesla trip hazard... or solution to charging when you have no driveway.

I’m surprised it’s still so windy and cold but very glad Saturday was so nice. I went out for a nice paddle in the sunshine, just a few hours before the storm hit!

I need to get my antenna pole down to free a stick pulley but I can’t do that until it stops being so windy!

Mosfet girl t-shirt:

I really hope this does well, since it’s for charity and also awesome!

Since I this morning I had to read an article stating "Why brave isn't bad" and trying to debunk some "myths" about it, it really doesn't touch anything that was broadly explained in this wonderful article:

It sums up the problem with Brave quite well.
