Batteries & Solar / Re: Show us your Solar Power System.
« Last post by N5VMO_Pat on September 03, 2018, 10:02:29 AM »
I'm going to meet with a Ham Buddy Tuesday ( tomorrow ) for making his new trailer / portable Ham Shack ... bug out shack solar / wiring / insulation / heating /cooling / ventilation =)    I have my in-progress ( twenty years in the making ) Search and Rescue / camping homebrew Caravan trailer =)     As the trailer group I belong to over fifteen years calls them "Hard Sided Tent with Wheels " =)    I will try to get pictures of his build and needing to clean up and add new larger doors, add the new painted fenders for the wide tires on the new axle and widen about a foot =)    It is only a Solar powered Ham Shack, emergency communications and sleeping trailer =)

Morse Code / Re: Can Morse Code Still Save You?

I've been following the comments to your excellent post.  Small wonder so many cannot comprehend Morse;  because evidently, they cannot comprehend what they read on the screen!

Time for a snack, then back to yard work.

Morse Code / Someone's Blogpost about Learning Morse Code

Gil has written about it, I have, others have.  Here is another fellow and he really did a good deed by writing of his recent learning of Morse code.

I downloaded the app "Morse Machine" by IU4APC

https://alphapapacharlie.com/2015/01/26/morse-machine/

Seems it is, alas, only available for Android devices. Even if an iOS version is promised in a reply to a 2015 comment.

Thanks for postin over there, Gil.  It's a thought provoking article.  The Answer (tm) isn't always to pullout the credit card to buy a solution. A more reasoned , focused, minimalist approach is usually the best solution for when we are outside of the ham shack.

Great article Gil, sure sparked a lot of opinions but that's great if it gets people thinking.

Stan,

Sorry, I meant to direct you to http://ubitx.net/ for more info regarding the uBitx problem. Farhan's rebuttal is there. Personally I don't think this is as big a problem as some individuals are trying to make us believe. I still use mine everyday.
