Celebrating one year back in the hobby…

Today marks my one year anniversary of my return to amateur radio. To celebrate, I presented a talk on the Raspberry Pi to our local radio club, the McHenry County Wireless Association. As promised, I am uploading my slide deck,Introduction-to-the-Raspberry-Pi”.


For those interested in the Raspberry Shake and the earthquake reporting network, here are the links to the list of world-wide reporting stations and recent earthquakes.

Although I have been away from the hobby in order to focus raising a family, the hobby is no less exciting for me and offers so much to its devotees. Although we can easily communicate around the world with our cell phones, it still is a kick to directly communicate with other amateur radio operators whether he or she is around the corner or on the other side of the world. You have to admit that it is pretty cool to bounce your signals off of the moon, build your own projects, be a DX hound searching for those rare and elusive locations, or rack up points during the frequent contests and challenges.

I invite you to have a look at our hobby and leave a comment if you want more information.
