@jaquesviljoen I like it because it is a way of uploading my logs to LOTW but I found it difficult to run on a Pi in a way I could trust so I also use yfklog and paper. A lot of my operation in nets and I haven't found a log that allows multiple open QSOs at a time easily.
@F1RUM Unless you think of second hand equipment I don't think so. There are very few single band multimode transceivers. https://swling.com/blog/radio-marketplace/vhf-uhf-multimode-transceivers/ looks like a good list of what has been produced but what you are looking for probably requires looking for older equipment.
@DL6MHC Agreed on the pen and paper, I like my logbook to be neat and tidy ( usually fails ) so take notes from the QSO on a pad, then transfer to the logbook. I could do this into an electronic log instead but they are not as searchable as I would like sometimes.
@DL6MHC I log every manual QSO, mostly on paper but if it is a contest or for Dx also in yfklog so I have an electronic file for submission. I long the times I am operating JS8call and FT8 but any logging there is in the specific software. I also log failed attempts for my PACTOR skeds with DB0NTS because it helps me identify changing propagation.
Well I was watching :-) I didn't use the live Q&A function as the first presentation I attended got messy when someone was replaying the presentation audio into the Zoom room but I don't think attendance in zoom was fully representative of the total viewers...
@m0ofx It's just a shame that everyone has lost. The total number of users is waaay down on before and some of the lighter utilised channels may just not come back :-(
@elita Play what you enjoy :-) My tastes have ranged from Art of Noise to Wintergatan and lots in between. The diversity is what I like about Anonradio :-)
@elita Nice to hear you back, but like most of Anonradio I have to listen from the archives because of Time Zone differences so I'm a hidden listener 😠
@ly2en because the signal to noise level is better here? I'm probably monitoring Mastodon more now that I am working from home and can keep a web page open. When I have to go back to an office and only get 40 toots at a time through the Fedilab app it may be different.
@F1RUM @es0mhi Yes, I tried something similar. I could not get the 1707 when I wanted one but found you could reconfigure the 1708 to do the same job :-) I did not use the cable to control switching and the RF sensing was not quick enough to cope with PACTOR so I can't use it for my normal operation. It may be a solution for SSB and slower data modes though.
@es0mhi @F1RUM I did not mention the noise reduction possibility of the loop because for me that is no longer the case :-( I switched from 'open' antennas years ago to a large horizontal loop which did reduce the noise a lot and gave good transmit efficiency. High noise levels now mean I am looking to take the loop down and put a smaller antenna up which will actually capture less noise 😠
