General Discussion / Raspberry Pi update
December 13, 2022, 11:36:08 PM
I was trying to update my Raspberry Pi the other day.  It came back with a "you're running an out of date system" error.  I imaged a new micro SD card and inserted it.  Finally someone did something right.  Plug and play all the way through the setup.  Super fast also.  I took the old card and reimaged it for my other Pi.  I just have to get it running with the digirig and 817nd.
Morse Code / QRP DX
November 12, 2022, 09:25:23 AM
The last couple of days I have been camping in South Texas.  I am learning Morse Code and have been using it mainly with either my Yaesu FT-817 or the KX3.  With an endfed wire on my DX Commander pole I was talking easily to Hungary and Bulgaria.  My issue is my local EMMCOM wants WINLINK on 80 meters.  It is all well and good but if you are 'deployed' I can't see having the room for an 80 meter antenna.  Any suggestions??  It just amazes me that shack rats expect field rats to use 100 watts on WINLINK on 80 meters.
