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 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.
Three years ago today I registered the mastodon.radio domain
To celebrate our birthday I am super excited to reveal our new mascot @alex!

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...
So I guess it's official now.

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