Show Notes #088

Introduction:

  • A sticky, stormy night in Texas, just right for podcasting and Russ' attempt to take over the MintCast.

Announcements:

Topics:

  • Pimpin' the network: If you have a podcast and want to reach LHS listeners, please visit Black Sparrow Media and contact us to become a member! The Waveguides Podcast did and so can you.
  • Who is your hero in amateur radio, living or dead? Let us know! Richard is gathering information for his super-secret project.
  • Storm watchin and workin on radios. While a storm raged in Texas, Richard received an email about an IC-735 that would not power on reliably. Richard's trouble-shooting philosophy: start with the things that are cheap to replace.
  • Richard is hoping to pursue a high-speed multimedia (HSMM) and mesh radio project using DD-WRT or OpenWrt for use in emergency communications. Used routers, such as the Linksys WRT54GL, are ideal and can be found for little money.

Feedback:

  • Leif, KC8RWR, wrote to clarify a comment to episode 86, explaining that he'd like to try using an NE602 frequency converter to an RTLSDR radio to receive ham bands.
  • Brian, G3XGY, heard Russ on the Mintcast and is looking forward to listening to episodes of LHS! Welcome, Brian.
  • Leif, KC8RWR, offers a suggestion for Grant, who was having difficulty with the LHS live Linux CD handed out at Dayton. He thinks it may have been due to Linux not recognizing Grant's video card. Thanks, Leif.
  • Harrison, VE2HKW, a sometime participant in MintCast, expresses his appreciation for episode 85, our interview with David Rowe and discussion of Codec2. Thanks, Harrison. Speaking of Codec2, Russ reports that David Rowe has won the 2012 ARRL Technical Innovation Award for his work on Codec2. Congratulations, David!
  • Harrison, VE2HKW, wrote to ask for help with his Icom IC-735 (as mentioned above).
  • Claudio of the LinuxBasement podcast thanks us for the mention in episode 87.
