#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 😊
@graffen I'll be there. Quite new to ham radio, but I've been to several congresses. Happy to connect :) DO8AB
@graffen yes. A 2 m / 70 cm FM handset for sure, and probably my portable HF setup. The parameters you listed above are DMR only or could I also reach you with my FM handset?
@abrain that's DMR only but I'll probably listen on 145.500 analog as well since that seems to be the "official" calling freq in Europe. What are you planning for an HF antenna? I'm just planning on bringing my Anytone this time since my baggage space is limited.
@graffen Great. I have a WhizzLoop v2 to directly attach to the radio. Haven’t tried TX yet, but heard several stations across Europe even indoors. And if all goes well, I‘ll receive an external sound card today that I can hook up to the HF radio for digimodes. Really curious to try out FT8 and others over the weekend.
@abrain The WhizzLoop is for QRP operations right? You should be able to make some contacts with it still, though. It'll be interesting to see what the noise floor at ccc looks like. At BornHack I got 9+30 noise consistently on all bands due to all the cheap Chinese switching power supplies running LEDs all over the camp :)
