Enjoying #introductions, 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!
Happy new year mastodonians!
📢 WSJT-X 2.5.4 was just released, with two new people stepping up to replace work done by the late G4WJS: https://sourceforge.net/p/wsjt/mailman/message/37410894/
This looks like a small bug fix release to "Repair a defect that caused occasional crashes when in QSO with stations using nonstandard callsigns."
URLs are unchanged:
It's that time of year where I like to share this awesome video by CGP Grey
Unsure why my 📢 emoji didn'twork!
:loudspeaker: WSJT-X 2.5.3 was just released with a new feature for ARRL VHF contents: https://sourceforge.net/p/wsjt/mailman/message/37398008/
I was sad to read that Bill G4WJS passed away recently. I had never spoken with him but was always impressed by his patience and breadth of knowledge.
Only Win64 packages have been released so far, but URLs are the same as always:
I just discovered some morse keycaps https://prototypist.net/collections/in-stock-keycaps/products/in-stock-infinikey-morse
The "operator" kit's caps only have morse on, which is interesting
It's time to promote hashtag usage !
Please, add relevant #hashtags in your toots, it really helps to retrieve old discussions 😉
I find these development update posts really interesting https://blog.flipperzero.one/november-update/
It's great to get a view into how real problems are solved. I've seen the same sort of thing on CrowdSupply 👌
Today I spent a while fighting with a "black pill" STM32 board, which must be a clone. I can't get the thing in DFU mode and it has a weird HID bootloader and USB IDs: 0483:572A [WeAct Studio WeAct Studio HID Bootloader], but everything expects 1209:BEBA. 😕
I have now given up and ordered an ST-LINK programmer (very cheap, so also a clone ) so hopefully I'll have more luck with that!
WSJT-X 2.5.2 was released yesterday with bug fixes for JT65 or Q65 with non-standard call signs: https://sourceforge.net/p/wsjt/mailman/message/37379416/
URLs are the same as always
I also didn't know what `which` isn't POSIX. Interesting article from LWN: https://lobste.rs/s/vbrl9x/debian_s_which_hunt
My friend and colleague Paul was on the FLOSS podcast: https://twit.tv/shows/floss-weekly/episodes/653?autostart=false I've not watched yet due to lots of power cuts and being busy but it's probably interesting
