Interesting Times

Having come back from holidays and the advent of COVID-19, I haven’t done much with Amateur Radio. I intend on getting MB6NG on air soon so watch for that. More information on MB6NG can be found here.

Will be ordering another radio to do this job as I have been told that the TAIT radio’s are a little more reliable than the Motorola radio I have. I will repurpose the Motorola for another project.

I did while on holidays fire up my Pi-Star hotspots and found that I had forgotten some of the operation procedures associated wit Pi-Star. Didn’t take long to work out what I needed to do to get going again.

Lanzarote – September 2019

Travelling to Lanzarote again staying at the same apartment block as my partner and I did in March 2018.

This will be staying on the island from 1st to 12th September 2019 in Costa Teguise.

I will have my Pi-Star Hotspot with me and a DMR, D-Star and Fusion handheld radio’s which are capable of analog too. If you see this post before I have completed my holiday and would like to make a meet up or make contact while I’m on Lanzarote, please make contact with me via my Contact Me page. I’m looking forward to meeting some of the Amateurs on the island.

My understanding is that there is a repeater on the island and will programming a radio to this before I leave the UK.

A website I view regularly is for the airport webcam. I love to watch planes.
