My started to hang/crash when sending packets - and transmitting silence indefinitely. Turns our it's nothing a simple configuration reset wouldn't fix, but still - strange

My first HAM meet today. Hope 2 hours drive will be worth it!

Hey #cccamp19, you know everything you buy from Decathlon has a long-range UHF RFID tag on it, and I have a reader with 10m range?

145 unique tags scanned from a quick walk around the Milliways area.

Looks like, thanks to YSF2DMR, I'll be back on using my radio :D maybe we need a common TG for ?

First radio lost to the "wilderness" (well, suburbs tbh) - check. It was nice knowing you, Baofeng 1801!

Tool published a new single yesterday, and the album is on the way; their music also appeared on Spotify

Yesterday together with SP6HFE we tuned my inverted V built partially from trash with a cheap RigExpert and got 1.5 SWR on 20 meters. Great success!

Anyone here with DM-1801? How far are you able to reach? Mine works just fine with a hotspot, but opening a repeater about 1km away is a challenge. Analog repeaters work a bit better

Converting BrandMeister contact list and repeater list to CSV expected by Baofeng 1801:

Using Mastodon through IRC feels way better than I thought it would

Baofeng 1801 should be delivered today. here I come!

Just got refused service in shoe shop - physical one, but only with computers to browse the offer - for declining marketing emails

I'm playing with an Polish GPS navigation software that was very popular pirated during the early '00 and now can be bought on Android for a reasonable price, and turns out it has repeaters, aprs digipeaters and ham radio weather stations as POI included by default. Neat!

rtlsdr found in the deepest, forgotten depths of the drawer + rpi3 which is running 24/7 Pi-Hole anyway = shiny new receive-only IGate!

There's email and SMS gateway. Is there a fediverse one?

Hello, my name is Michał and I'm a HAM from Poland. Quite a fresh operator - I've got my licence for a year and a half - interested in APRS and digital modes, but recently trying to go on HF bands. I also like riding a bike wherever possible. Thanks!
