10m has been on fire today! I managed to make a few contacts here and there throughout the day until it faded down later in the afternoon. It seems to be picking up a bit again now. #hamradio
I've set up a basic gettogether page for #Cryptohagen https://gettogether.community/events/242/cryptohagen/
Today is #Cryptohagen day! If you're in the area, drop by and have a coffee and chat about surveillance and privacy tools with us 😊
Ah, storage issues. They'll be back! :)
Anyone out there with 2.4GHz #antenna experience who can help me with this helix antenna?
I tried building the #iceconefeed by DO8PAT, but I can't seem to get a good VSWR at 2.4GHz.
I tried moving and bending some parts that I though affected the tuning, but the dip at 2.174GHz stays pretty much in the same spot.
Also any pointers to literature about these types of antennas are highly appreciated.

#36c3 will be my first visit to Congress. Tips and tricks for a n00b like me are welcome although I'll be going with some seasoned veterans 😊
I never really grew attached to my #ham #callsign OZ3JH. It just doesn't roll off the tongue as easily as I would like. So today I went off and registered OZ9DLP instead - it popped up in my head the other day and wouldn't leave me alone. When I went to check who was behind it and it turned out to be free, I thought "OK I guess that's the one".
