hey, I didn't do too bad this time! I forgot about doppler shift for a second, and it went out of range in the middle of the next one, but I'll take it as a win! Multimode for OSX is really really good. GQRX + soundflower makes it pretty easy to capture SSTV imagery.

well, I tried as hard as I could to decode one of the ISS SSTV transmissions :crt_w_test_pattern:

I built this antenna, it isn’t the best but I made it. I don’t have equipment to tune it super well, but I can look at the squiggles in gqrx and figure out if my noise floor/signal look better or worse, and you know what, it’s ok! Using this for my raspberry pi Igate

looks like someone's running some high altitude balloons down in iowa tonight. their tocall is CQ so I sent a message but I don't think they're gonna reply :o)

Another brag is I didn’t have any leftover screws thanks to the advent of old service manuals being available online. This thing is built like a tank and entirely assembled with three sizes of torx fasteners

Also forgot to mention I ran GWBASIC on appropriate hardware for the first time in 25 years and remembered approximately nothing about how to use it despite putting hundreds of hours into it back then

Took apart one of these at freegeektwincities.org on Saturday. Forgot to take a picture but the leather handle was in nearly perfect condition. Only thing really yellow was the keyboard. The CRT looked great! The young folks working said it “looked like fallout” yeah it does! Only better!

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

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
