Episode 325: SatNOGS Ground Station Building Guide from TAPR DCC 2019

Learn to build and operate your own SatNOGS ground station. The Sunday Seminar is somewhat like the “anchor” topic of the entire weekend of the TAPR Digital Communications Conference. In 2019 we had the privilege of hearing from Corey, KB9JHU and Dan AD0CQ from the SatNOGS Team and they are going to give us, in detail, instructions for setting up a home satellite station.

Episode 324: Retevis RT-52 Steps to Enable the 220MHz Band

Retevis RT-52 Steps to Enable 220MHz – hacking the RT-52, as I like to call it. These steps will allow you to open up the VFO on the radio and allow it to go up to 260MHz. This will allow it to TX on the 1.25M 220MHz Amateur Radio band.

Episode 321: Baofeng DM-1701 Dual Band DMR HT

Another DMR HT from Baofeng, this is the DM-1701, which isn’t all that unique, really. That doesn’t mean that is a poor performer, though – just that it is something we have seen before. Take a look at the video and feel free to comment below.
