The cable ditch is finally digged to completeness
check my page for “antennas and towers” : My antennas & towers
There you will find some news about my infrastructure projects. It seems like i have completed the digging for this year. As soon as I have the connectivity up and running I can start to become QRV again.
Digging and more digging
I have been buys lately rebuilding the entire SM7SJR setup on the ground. Burying coax cables, fibre and more stuff… Take a look at “My antennas & towers” for pictures of the “disaster” , *LOL*
So I finally gathered parts and got the ADS-B reciever going. ADS-B is flighttracking, I am feeding to at least one network : opensky. I am sometimes also feeding ADS-B Exchange and Radarbox. The reason for me to do this is interest in aircrafts but also to feed our “own network” (airscout).
I will later on publish some info of how I did set up my raspberry PI for this. But not now… *smile*
Long time and no see
It was quite a bit of time since I updated the blog. Well what is new? I have a 2el for 40m mounted but have not yet used it. Playing around with the ideas of an antenna mount for my planned 80m vertical. I am still very much thinking of 160m DXing… but I have a few projects I need to finish off first. Like getting QRV with tropo gear for 23cm, 6cm and 3cm.
Thetis 2.8.11 in action
A new toy arrived…
OK so I bought a Sitemaster, Anritsu S331D. I have fel the need for such an instrument now and then, and all of the sudden it got a bit urgent (Perseids is closing in and I have some cable/antenna work left before I am QRV for real).
VUSHF coffe and smalltalk
We had our annual small VUSHF meet and greet, this time it was my turn to be the host. So I welcomed SM0LCB, SM7GVF, SM7GEP, SM7THS, SM7WSJ and SM7THS at my QTH. It was a full day of talk about or current setups and some “ancient” history of ham events and such. Really nice.
