A quick note with a suggestion and observations.
First, I had a great chat over ZedNet with a fellow in Tokyo. He accessed ZedNet through WIRES-X, I through my DMR hotspot. In the Yaesu System Fusion (WIRES-X) “room” 28598 is cross-linked to Brandmeister (BM) DMR worldwide talkgroup 31429.
If you are a ham and are interested in this to get yourself going, WB0YLE gave me a Bill of Materials. A list of what you need. HERE It’s what I have. Basic, but it works. It doesn’t use a local repeater. Rather the hotspot is in my home network. I do have a “mobile” set up, identical, in a small bag and I can tether it to my mobile phone.
Also, I see on SpaceWeather that, as I write there are some sunspots.
And there is a new comet to look at as well: Erasmus, which comes around every 2000 years or so.
Back to radio.
Perhaps during Advent we could try a weekly net?
I created a page for the List of YOUR callsigns. HERE Chime in or drop me a note if your call doesn’t appear in the list.
