The sounds a lot more like a Doom Star reflector, Tony.
"Hey RamRod, we got a tractor hauling Dynamite and behind him is a Tanker of Hydrogen. Squeez the Jesus folks in the Hippy Van in-between them; they need all the help they can get... CONVOY "
Edit: it was a good song, campy movie however...
I built one using a $35 DV hat from Amazon. I already had the radio and Raspberry Pi. Super easy.
I lurk on the DStar 30c reflector while I work. It's kind of neat hearing folks from all over the globe pop in and out. I suppose one day I'll pick up the radio and actually talk, but I'm not one to randomly ragchew unless I know the person.
In 2003 this set of Discovery and Rockets was Awesome: few of them it was several hours of episodes :
Great video! I would have loved to have been in that group of whackos!
...reminds me of getting into trouble at 17 years old in my first job in an oil refinery laboratory....just because the boss discovered me making rocket fuel when there was no other work to do!
By the way, we put mini computers and radios in those Rockets Hi HI , APRS, 900mhz telemetry, RaspPi and cameras on IP video [I used to used 2.4g analog back then but now there is too much cell phone interference on 2.4 even in the middle of nowhere USA ]
At that same field in 2010, here is a 2.4g analog video on the Flight of the Redstone:
Or the 7.200 of Wires-X..
They are much better , Hi HI
Ham radio is not a zero-sum game. Those modes do not prevent more traditional modes from being utilized and hams who use those modes are not prevented from using traditional modes. If a ham chooses to only use those modes, is that all that different than those hams who choose to operate CW only?
Ham radio was the STEM arena of its day. DV and digital modes are more in line with that line of thinking than anything analog if you consider where communications technologies are going today. I wonder if people who rail against DV and digital modes have lost that plot, focusing more on "tradition" than technological progression.
