@bcallah You don't actually say what type of window you are going through.. I found a window feed through https://www.diamondantenna.net/mgc50.html . Which is some flat transmission line which will fit in s 3mm gap. Most windows have that much slack in them somewhere. A cheaper version for HF is two SO239's with the centres and grounds joined by hookup wire. The length of this dodgy transmission line wasn't enough to damage the antenna performance, you do need to keep an eye on separation and power levels...
Neither thick nor sick :-) A UPS may have an internal bypass switch but that's no damn use if you have to replace the whole unit... Trouble is ( depending on the size of the unit) customers don't like the additional cost of additional switchgear to wrap around the UPS to fully bypass it to be worked on :-( The downtime they said they would tolerate disappears when the unit fails as well....
@M0YNG The changes have been concocted on a Telegram group where 'UK Admins' gather. There is a bit in the PDF that encourages change to the new groiups but not mandatory yet. I suggest that if you want to keep it then advertise the group somewhere on the web and hopefully get some activity.
@M0YNG Have you seen the changes being made to UK Brandmeister talkgroups at http://hamradio.joomla.com/images//Reflectors_being_turned_off.pdf ? Looks like the #Feditalk TG is at risk unless some sustained usage is proven to make people look at using other TGs.
@F1RUM Did you have RSID enabled to help applications switch to the correct mode?
Rasbian image, the only issue I have had was relating to an SD card that slowed down on read/write speeds. The issue presented as a jittery waterfall display after a few months of operation. A new card sorted it but longer term I'm wondering about using eMMC and a sd card adaptor to improve the lifespan.
@M0YNG I run wsjtz, fldigi and js8call with no issues on a Pi 3 and have VNCed to the Pi. Normally though I use the 7" screen and a keyboard. The Pi also had enough power to run the Signalink too 🙂
Conditions seemed good last night. Heard Canada for the first time over my high local QRN
