My professor wants me to combine my solar web server efforts with also doing solar HAM radio stuff. I don't know anything about radio except that my dad and his friends grew up using it to evade the Burmese regime. Send me cool HAM radio stuff for a noob thanks.

@pixouls There's a good youtube channel called Ringway Manchester. Maybe peep some of the beginner stuff on there.

@pixouls @elplatt I'm just gonna tag in my friend Ed, who made an attempt to get me into it, but he'd already gotten me into Mastodon and I only accept one niche interest from friends to prevent an overloading in niche interests

@rra @pixouls The latest version is out in the desert since a year (tomorrow) and still going strong: aprs.fi/telemetry/KK6JBU-1

Much fun digging into the weird HAM world @pixouls!

@gohai @rra @pixouls this reminds me of Pond Station, I'm going to have to try and find the time to do somethng similar: https://www.zachpoff.com/artwork/pondstation/

@pixouls If I were to think about a solar amateur radio project I would choose to make a portable, self contained, easy to deploy WSPR beacon. This would make so much sense for anyone in the world who is into shortwave and high altitude balloon!

@mike @pixouls ooo. I need to write up my solar power APRS setup...

Have a look at my site https://m0yng.uk but also the whole mastodon.radio instance!

@M0YNG @mike i didn't look close enough the first time, but i appreciate being able to see all the data and the code

@pixouls @mike the first link doesn't have the chart, I'm not sure if it is too much info and if it actually conveys any information

@M0YNG @mike oh i see! i went to the same link instead of the chart one. The chart looks like some really cool computational poetry, but as you mentioned, might not be comprehensible to have them all on the same scale.

@pixouls god I wish I had done anything with technology a fraction as cool as "outwitting the tatmadaw"

@pixouls you could maybe connect your server to AMPRnet, the 44.0.0.0/8 subnet reserved for ham radio. chances are there's a local chapter that has set up some access points for it. broadcasting stuff over APRS is another option

also it's ham not HAM :)
