Hello, I'm thinking of migrating my account from to here since I'm mostly using it for #AmateurRadio anyways.

I got my Technician license 12 years ago but only bought a #baofeng a couple months ago to actually start using it. I'm currently studying for my #general.

I've joined the #ARRL, #AMSAT, and #LWCA so far.

I'm interested in working #Satellites, #LongWave, learning #CW, and getting into #HF.

ARRL is running a sale on antenna books. Picked up "the" antenna book.

I hate black friday, but i love cheap radios. Too bad nobody is running any extreamly cheap sales. The best I've seen is like 40 off of a dual band analog/dmr mobile.

I just found out about Helium Mining... what fresh hell....

"The top ten ocean lines in 1998 had less than 20% of the market, today it’s over 80%."

In other words, monopolies and deregulation (caused by the Ocean Shipping Reform Act of 1998), was one of the main reasons for the shipping issues we see today. A great piece from Matt Stoller:

I was listening to a podcast about college clubs and they brought up that one of the clubs had setup remote access to some of their equipment so members could still book operating time during covid.

I wish this was more common. Im pretty limited on what i can rig up here and paying dues to access a radio connected to far better antennas would be awesome.

Woot! Made it to the net on and the local clubs net on their repeater. Everything's comin up Milhouse!

I think I've seduced my significant other into ! She's a gamer, all i had to do was tell her about DX competitions and achievements.

We bought study guides for all three tests. With a bit of work we may both be Extras next year.

Ive been listening to The KBC online lately. Playing around with WebSDR i still haven't found where it can be heard "on the air".

Got all 3 license study guides to study with my SO. She got super interested in HF when i told her about contesting....

Just found out about although I don't have the hardware yet to listen to it. Not sure why Broadcast is so suddenly interesting to me. But if I could afford to I'd totally setup a station.

The ARRL has two podcasts, "On the Air" is part of their newbie friendly initiative of the same name, and Eclectic tech which covers alot of the fun niche tech in the space.

They are both very bad things because now I want to do crazy stuff with weather balloons and giant Long wave antennas.

Bored internet dudes really want there to be some heated rivalry between Amateur Radio and GMRS.
