So I don't know much about and terminal commands and all that techie jazz.

But I do see one ☝️ big advantage in installing using the terminal window: I get none of the misleading images, buttons and links common on many download sites that try to trick you into clicking on their download "buttons", making you think that they're the way to get your .

None of those trickster that pretend to be a legit part of the page or article that you're viewing! 😜👍

Okay, so i can get WHO AM 1040 from Des Moines most every night quite well. I am really enjoying listening to it too. Thinking of getting the Sangean HDR-18 because it supports the new HD radio tech and has ports for external antennas for AM/FM

Alright. It appears i can get WHO 1040 AM from Des Moines and WBZ 1030 AM from Boston on a regular basis once the sun sets.

I am currently listening to WHO 1040 AM from Des Moines IA. This is in my basement bedroom on a pocket radio. The station is 381 miles west of me and is coming in extremely well @FromtheAbyss

The synthesized voices you sometimes get in EDM/DnB mixes to sound robotic or whatever?

...They are exactly the ones I'm used to from the screenreader software I use for uni. So every time I hear one I don't think "oh how robotic or cool or futuristic" I think "this is the sound of HOMEWORK."

#introduction

I was first licensed back in the 90s, but got busy with life and let my license lapse. A few years ago, I got interested again (seems common), so I got my license again and upgraded to general.

I bought my first HF rig this month, but it sits in a box until I get a chance to build an antenna. I'm planning on building a fan dipole for the attic.

Also interested in digital radio and all things Linux. I run nothing but Linux now for computers and phone. \m/

I am getting my first 12v battery for the ham shack. Its a 12v 15a bioenno power lithium iron (LiFePO4) battery. Looking forward to using it as my new power supply. My current desktop supply is 23a with a 25a peak. This battery is 30a with a 60a peak. Much better. My 7300 can pull up to 21a so i only had 2a of head room. A bit tight if you ask me.

Listening to wrmi on 9.395MHz also, i still exist

I just bought a radioddity GD77 and i am going to install the opengd77 firmware and make it blind friendly!!!!!!

Heyo. Just arrived here. 🖐️I came because I'm sick of surveillance capitalism and want to contribute to a new paradigm of user-respecting tech.

Looking forward to exploring!

In a few words...what do you love about this place, and what are your favorite things you follow?

Field day 2020 has come and gone. It was a hell of a lot of fun. We ate lots of good food, made contacts and got to shoot the shit. When i got home i literally walked in the door, sat on the couch and slept for five hours. Havent even considered unpacking the 7300 yet. .

@tootleapp I just got ahold of an IOS device and was playing with your app and noticed some accessibility bugs. The labels are not correctly done on the filter button at top left of home TL, that random play/pause button at the top right, the more options and follow buttons on profile pages

Hi, I'm Graeme , from North West England.

Hoping there's lots of like-minded people here on fosstodon!

I feel like less and less people on the fedi are using imagine descriptions and it bums me out so fucking much.

we have a tool that allows us to, with almost no effort, make this space wildly accessable to people who don't normally get that space. a tiny amount of time that has a huge impact on people's lives

how do you not see how powerful and cool that is how do you not use it I just don't understand
