@Snowdusk Clair here, Adamd driving in Carlisle PA listening to

Flight delayed 2.5 hours and TSA kept my Kenwood TH-D74 radio pending review by someone. The joys of air travel.

@snowdusk_ Thanks for the shout out at 38:20. At 49:40 Clair started doing a fake strip tease taking off her sweatshirt to 99 red balloons. :)

Hurricane nets on 14.325 USB and 7.268 LSB. Not hearing much yet.

The workbench today.
Its a Kantronics All Mode TNC that was just repaired. It works! TNC needed Q11, VR1, VR2 and a couple of caps.

Adamd, Clair, and friends getting an anonymous picture for mastodon. The lady at the end of the table, who was not with our group, was laughing at us.

KAM TNC. Owner said it worked for 30 minutes when he purchased it a long time ago. So far:
LM7805 +5V regulator
LM79L05 -5V regulator
PN2222A NPN GP Transistor
Still waiting for the LM79L05 but if I inject 5V it talks to me via its serial port. A good sign.
Replaced the LM7805 with a DC DC converter.

My newest PC build. 2U chassis, ASROCK 960GC-GS FX, FX-6300, 16G DDR3, 480G SSD, GT1030. The only new components are the 2U chassis and the GT1030.

Missed last night because our clubs Yeasu DR-1X amateur radio repeater died. This picture is our temp setup. Its as bad as it looks. Mobile radio's on an old repeater controller. A pedestal fan provides cooling.

Had a blast with agetty today. Created a serial console at 300 baud and connected. Brought back fun memories. Htop did seem to stop responding though. :) I guess 300 baud isn't enough for htop.
