Banner weekend for #ham stuff. Worked several new states on HF towards Worked All States, made my first PSK31 contact on 20m, and worked my first station on an FM satellite!
Successfully set up my Othernet (https://othernet.is) receiver today! Pulled down satellite radio, weather, news, and a few Wikipedia articles. Pretty cool!
If you're waiting for the #Pinebook Pro then here are the shipping dates:
ISO keyboard units: December 24th ANSI keyboard units: December 31st - January 5th.
I should add that was on 5 watts of power!!
