Will be interested to see morse code device.... mounting.I’m interested in installing an amateur radio in a Regal Sportback. The device is about 2x6x10 inches. The area under the front of the center console look promising. Is there anything under there?
Ham Radio Operators don’t even need to know (or get tested for) Morse anymore.Will be interested to see morse code device.... mounting.
Just kidding... how much power and what kind of antenna ..big whip like on highway patrol series tethered in front.
Morse code is a digital mode. Just really slow transmission rate. A lot of digital modes are in use. It’s a fun hobby.No doubt they have come along way since my cousin was into that in the 60's.
Did that go digital like everything else?
Lol. Yeah, we’ve gone from slow digital Morse to high speed digital.Ham Radio Operators don’t even need to know (or get tested for) Morse anymore.
To this old “Ditty Chaser”, that is blasphemy.
Great with a Msnual Key.
OK with a “Bug”.
Lousy with a fully Electronic Bug.
OK copying with a “Stick”.
As fast as you can send, I could copy with a typewriter or computer keyboard.
(I was good ).
Had not thought about morse being digital... that might be a little slow for sending video data.Lol. Yeah, we’ve gone from slow digital Morse to high speed digital.
Well ...Had not thought about morse being digital... that might be a little slow for sending video data.
When did voice transmissions on ham radio, convert from analog to digital?
How do you know that arcana? You must have used one. They had a very characteristic look. Another Avatar I considered was the control consile for the CDC 6400, a mainframe machine. Or the deadstart panel. But the PDP8 was my first computer. You never forget your first time.
Thanks for that refresher course on Ham Radio.Well ...
Amateurs use whatever type of transmissions they wish. Lots of analog FM transmissions on voice repeaters. Radiotelegraphy usually use frequency shift keying with one of many digital modes. Digital techniques are coming to the FM band, and many repeaters will handle both analog and digital modulation. It's in tremendous flux, which for amateur operators is a positive thing. Always fun to lean new things.
Doing what you want has it's limitations, Someone else has to respond! But Amateurs can use ham frequencies for remote control applications. Another big area is the convergence of internet with Ham radio. Then there is the contesting. It's really wide open. Another general rule is courtesy. All the frequencies are shared, so the experimenters stay out of the frequencies the Moon Bounce operators favor, and we all stay off repeater input frequencies.Thanks for that refresher course on Ham Radio.
Sounds like it has gone the way of alot of other things in our society... just do whatever you want.
Probably can find someone out there that still does morse ...and some that speak pig-latin,
PS Keep in mind sign language might be hard to hear.
