Today I truly enter the hamdom as I buy a money order to send to a guy in Wisconsin, so he in turn will send me a 1200 baud modem

Hey if I’m not shorting the wrong shit to ground on my easy digi then I’m completely fucking up my sound card config on the rpi

I also receive one of the LoRa UART interfaces and verified I could send data fart noises on that too

Requested a /32 in 44/8, set up a RX-only IGate, soldered the Easy Digi together. RX is working well, but I can’t for the life of me get TX to work with this Baofeng. Tried serial, tried VOX, just going to have to double check everything again in the morning. I was able to verify data fart noises when I plugged the audio out cable into a speaker so wtf

yeaaaah I think I’m gonna set up a radio bbs soon

prob should clarify that I have pretty bad RSI issues when I play my current switch in this configuration)

definitely not buying this based on the angles of this man's wrists in the official promo video alone

I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.

This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.

I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.

furiously refreshing a search on fcc.gov for my FRN on a known national holiday

passed. I tech exam yesterday morning and already looking at vanity callsigns. I guess you can pick any region number in the prefix but tbh k0, n0, w0 are pretty nice already and maybe my assigned callsign will have a nice ring to it

I’ve had a raspberry pi in my garage looking at APRS packets and so far it is all via digipeaters but today I got original packets from a plane taking off from the nearby airport ^________^

some day I will create wallpaper for my office made out of the shitty little remotes that come with rtl-sdr dongles

it’s still hard to reconcile that I didn’t really need to get another car, but I live in a first ring suburb that wasn’t designed for a car free (at least when Rua is at work) lifestyle, so whatever

I have never had a hybrid before and it is super weird to me that they intentionally expose three different mode goggles instead of keeping it simple for the user. That said, feels good to see “100 mpg” on a trip summary

bought a used Prius plug-in. I don’t commute and transit is kind of a bummer where I am, so I expect I’ll be using it almost entirely for EV-mode only trips to the grocery store

messed up that the friends theme is by green day
