@bamfic OshPark is really good for small boards. You don't need to run a cam processor and make gerbers. Easy! I rarely wire up protos up anymore as banging out a simple design in CAD is way easier. #future

And this list of radio amateurs on mastodon, may be of interest:

And there are apps!

Happy tooting!

So many pages that describes digital modes on HF at a high level, and maybe sometimes giving audio file samples, but *not* *one* document anywhere which details how the modulation actually works.

Not. One.

@vertigo Could be, I just grabbed an interesting picture from somewhere for the post.

On second look, it does appear to be PSK since the eye remains definite, and the phase appears to be inverting.

@nonlinear @SDF The picture shows FSK31, but shouldn't it be PSK31? ;)

aprsd(8) now supports multiple beacons, including position reports (with and without timestamps) and object beacons.

The next step is going to be to add digipeating, which means taking the beacon loop and adding a check for incoming packets, and then repeating them if required.

I'm going to start off with one "listen" interface and one "transmit" interface and go from there.

Think I've "derisked" the main bits of going from RF to fediverse.

Next step will be different message types, then I'll try handling actual messages.

Calling #CQ on 146.52 today on my HT that's remotely controlling my rig in the car for higher power. It's using the locked band repeater function of the Kenwood TM-D710G. So my little .5w HT on the 440 side is retransmitting at 50w on 146.52. Now hopefully I can hear anybody that might come back to me on my HT directly since I'm not using my car's rig in cross band mode. Let's all use .52 people! :) #hamradio #listeningtostatic #whitenoise

aprsc working 

I had to recompile it for ARM because there are only ia32 and amd64 packages in their repo, but I got aprsc working as a local APRS-IS server with aprx acting as the iGate.

I'm picking up stations from quite far away now that I am using the J-pole, even though it's just mounted on my balcony railing at the moment rather than the mast on the roof. The stations in the Xastir screenshot are mostly digipeated, but only via RF.
