Search - "ham radio"
This ajit pai fucker is on my list. Have you watched the committee stream? Its obvious that everyone’s been paid and the decision has been made and the thing is just being staged to make it look like it was a democratic decision. This dude is working for Verizon, got the job as a favor from trump, and they’re just going to repeal net neutrality no matter what anyone says. And for them to say they’re trying to protect competition... yeah right. More like the right to arbitrarily censor and place artificial governors, they ain’t going to innovate shit. They would realize that if they knew half as many things about how the internet works as I’ve forgotten. I’ve never been so disgusted in my entire life. These transgressions are beyond the pale, and Will not be forgotten nor forgiven. The second they throttle my connection to anything or try to segregate ip blocks, I’m cancelling my internet and getting back into ham radio. Maybe we should start our own ipv6 network.15
Anyone else here a ham radio op, or know Morse code?
I'm currently re-learning Morse, and doing some preliminary studying before I take a ham course later this year.11
Just stumbled upon this channel of a woman called Jeri Ellsworth.. turns out that she's interested in HAM radio. This is something that I'm personally interested in as well, and seeing how the community here seems to have a keen interest in electronics, I figured that I might want to put it out there. After all, knowledge is to be shared :)
Also she's apparently self-taught as well which I think is really impressive. That's what - to me at least - separates the "I do it just for the money" people from the genuinely interested ones, and the spoonfed bunch from the curious few.
About a month ago my grandfather gave me the okay to work on a pi-hole and attach it to the router
So I did that yesterday, and he yells at me for it (because having a civil conversation is impossible with him) and says that we don't need "extra stuff" and says that I'll break the router.
I tried to explain how the process works but I was just shut down and interrupted.
He could have at least told me he changed his mind so I wouldn't have wasted over two hours of my day building and troubleshooting the device.
Mind you, he literally worked in hardware for 50 years and has had ham radio as a hobby for over sixty.
So I found out that
A) there's no Ham radio bandwidth
B) no Ham radio community
C) that Ham radio is technically illegal
D) but "easily could be made legal
And was considering applying for bandwidth allocation however, the way that applying works, implies a single studio, with equipment costs/budget and the likes.
Have any of you ever played with ham radio?3
Any other hams out there? Amateur radio geek here. Especially SDR (rtlsdr, gnuradio, NooElec TV tuner, DMR, etc.)
