Richard’s Radio Adventures Episode 12 I love it when a plan comes together, Pi-Star and Bullshit

This time we talk about the cockamamie requirements to be an ARES Member.

New information on Club and Repeater in Kaufman County, Texas. Trinity Valley Radio Club ( TVARC ) is Dead. New Management on they’re machines. if you are interested in Following our adventures as we build a club in the radio no mans land of Kaufman County Texas we are gathering up and coordinating here DFW Elmers www.facebook.com/groups/ElmerDFW/ Drop by. There is no cover charge just be sure to tip the waitress and Bartenders.

DMR. D-star, Pi-Star. Bought a Hotspot. Currently using it on D-Star because I had the hardware. If anybody is looking for any fairly high powered D-Star radios let me know I have a couple to sell. I have a DMR Radio coming. I hope I survive when the XYL finds out. I have become what I have loathed… an appliance operator 🙁 . There is a Pi-Star Group on Facebook if your interested in finding out more https://www.facebook.com/groups/pistarusergroup/. If you have a Raspberry Pi and want to build your own Hotspot you can get the Pi-Star OS at http://www.pistar.uk/ . It cost about a $100 dollars to build one. I bought mine preassembled for $105.00 at Amazon. Don’t have a link up for Amazon to get a little of that purchase but you can drop a donation at the website if you like.

We revisit that same tired argument that Amateur Radio is Dying.

And last but not least we have Richard’s Boring Story Time. You knew we would.

Share and Enjoy my people.
