Here's OH8STN's Youtube video about our overnight expedition to island of Hailuoto, #IOTA EU-184 and #WWFF OHFF-0970.

My after action report from our overnight expedition to island of Hailuoto, #IOTA EU-184 and #WWFF OHFF-0970.

I ran into issues and had to operate on completely different way than planned.

Always express times for meetings including date (as YYYY-MM-DD, or else month given as name instead of number, to avoid DD/MM or MM/DD confusion), day of week, time in 24-hour format with at least two time zones (local time and UTC). Indicate 12:00 also as noon, and 24:00 as midnight. The redundant information is there to make it easier to spot errors.

Thus: Monday, 2021-11-08, at 12:00 (noon) in Finnish time, or 10:00 UTC.

Or: Monday, Nov 8, at 12 (noon) Finland (10 UTC).

(Not: 8/11 at 12)

I'm packing for overnight ham radio #expedition. Tomorrow we'll land on #IOTA EU-184 and hopefully #WWFF OHFF-0970.

I hope at least 24 hours on site. WX forecast shows wet snow, 17 m/s gusts of wind and below freezing temperatures ❄️ ☃️

If we get there I'll be on air using callsign OH8HUB/P or OF8HUB/P.

Modes are #JS8Call and #FT8, maybe #SSB. If laptop runs out of battery and I'll go old school with voice and paper log. I might also check my Winlink email (address to use is OH8HUB).

Three years ago today I registered the domain

To celebrate our birthday I am super excited to reveal our new mascot @alex!

@Atsuko has done an amazing job at bringing them to life and we have a server banner too!

More birthday surprises to come...

PS: I don't need any money to keep our instance running or pay for this great art, but if you want to help I'll be able to buy that raspberry pi 4...

American Red Cross is running #Winlink #EMCOMM exercise this Saturday, May 8th.

International radio amateurs can participate by sending Winlink email greeting:

"In honor of World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day, May 8, 2021, we invite international amateur radio operators to participate in this exercise. International stations may participate by sending a simple email greeting over Winlink."

See their website for PDF containing all the details.

Time for another biased poll.

Do you know what CC and BCC stand for in eMail without having to look it up?

I would appreciate it if you boosted this toot. :-)

I’d like to help others make better free and open source software so I’m making this standing offer: I’ll review a project's README for free. If you're interested, follow the link below. If you know of someone who might be interested, send the link to them.

A break from radios today. I have things to improve before getting back on air so a bit of planning beforehand.

I had a huge urge to play #Barotrauma. A game which is is so agonizing and fun at the same time. I have not much experience with the game so there's plenty of learn.

The latest release also has one of the best trailers:

so if we have a raytracer written in SQL we just need a relational database written in GLSL

I made a dedicated account to toot about my ham radio things:

libpcap's pcap_stats function might or might not do what you might or might not want it to do.

However, it might or might not do it depending on the positions of certain celestial objects or not.
