Do any lobsters have ham radio licences?
I got my license in the US some years ago, although I haven’t put it to as much use as I would like.
Yes, I’m an active ham (Extra) who enjoys digital modes and hacking on ham-related software, among other things. I also have some fun with SOTA.
SA6CJK here (from Sweden, which has a single license class with no renewals). I’m active on FT8 on HF every now and then. QRP has gotten easier with the new digital modes.
Yes indeedy, finally got my license a few years ago even though radio has fascinated me since I was a kid.
Yes. Anyway I’m only in for APRS, SSTV and weathersats.
I do but I need to renew it, will likely get a new callsign since I moved to a new country. QRP is a very interesting technical challenge.
I do. It’s a surprisingly big hobby, not just a more powerful CB.
If anyone is curious you can get a QRP transceiver for $50 https://shop.qrp-labs.com/qcx (some assembly required). There are versions that work on the HF bands available to technicians if you don’t have a license with expanded privileges. There are a lot of resources for learning Morse Code online, it takes regular practice more than anything else.
Still hoping the QSX makes it out the door some day :)
