This is a cool little application that I’ve recently found that scratches an itch that I’ve had for a while. I compiled this code on my Linux desktop, and it works great. I haven’t tried for the Raspberry Pi yet, but it should be just as easy.
Hello to everyone. This is a reminder to those who know and a heads up to those who don’t know. There is a gathering planned for this Saturday, March 20th at the clubhouse at 9:00 am for an antenna build. There will be a 2 meter antenna and a 40 meter dipole constructed.. If you want to build a different antenna or one of these for yourself, that will be fine also. Please get in touch with Rick Swiney WB5TZN @ 662-322-7784 or send him an email to confirm attendance. Hope to see you there.
This weekend is the ARRL DX International SSB contest. Starting 0000Z, 6 March to 2400Z 7 March. It will be a great time to work on DXCC during the contest or catch the occasional rare DX stations practicing prior to the contest.
