I upgraded my amateur radio workstation today with a mixing desk and switchable medium-duty dummy load.

I can cover most of the frequencies within the HF spectrum, as well as the VHF and UHF ^,==,^

Someone on the 20 meter band, possibly from Finland, telling everyone to stay home >,==,>

Some images that I received over (frequency was 14230 kHz) yesterday. I started my 📻​ at a very active time ^,==,^

Discussion of a new generation of software that I'm authoring... 

This is the VHF/UHF antenna itself! With many thanks to @hiddensoul () for donating both it and the radio 📻 transceiver over to me, to keep indefinitely 📡​

My new command center ^,==,^ Featuring a FT7900R for VHF/UHF and a FT-450D for shortwave.

@hiddensoul said that he'd help me test the THD (i.e. Total Harmonic Distortion) of my sound system sometime, which is just so cool to think of! ^,==,^

I forget the equipment that he mentioned which is involved, but admittedly, it is a bit beyond me with my electrical skills >,==,>;;

Most of what I've learned is through experimentation with and with creating little circuits in .

But yeah, this is something I'm looking forward to~!


So my renewal notice came today for my license and wow, look at that warning for operating equipment while unregistered. You've got to love that... pay up or there'll be dire consequences >,==,>
