2m was quite lively last night with tropospheric propogation across the UK and northern Europe. Quite a few FT8 stations on, and I was able to work stations in Denmark and Northen Ireland with 6W.

Having a listen out for some of the satellites today. My vertical antenna isn't ideal for this but I've been reliably getting snatches of conversation from AO-92 as it passed over. I think I'll need to have a go at building a directional antenna for better results.

And of course, the important part: added some more stickers

Finally got around to looking at the chromebook @irl kindly donated back in July. I’ve replaced the end-of-life ChromeOS with Arch Linux and it is mostly running happily. Main hiccup has been that the power management doesn’t work properly - it we’ll go into sleep mode, but fails to resume afterwards. Battery life without sleeping isn’t terrible, so I might just live with that.

just sorted my holiday reading for me. I've enjoyed the Doctorow I've read before, so I'm looking forward to Walkaway.

Picked up a neopixel ring on a whim to have a play with. This is it being driven by an old Arduino but I've got a Gemma board to run it as a wearable - the plan is to make a hair ornament for Laura out of it.

‪Trying to take photographs at a gig under unhelpful lighting takes me back a bit, but at least now it doesn’t cost me in film‬.

Listening to the Kermode and Softley commentary track for Hackers, lots of interesting insight into the making of the film.
