Morse code Used for a Man’s Last Patch to Gnome 3

Tuesday, April 12th, 2011

Morse Code. Many think that it’s no longer relevant. It is for many with disabling conditions. A collection of products called Darci Products are one group of inputs for the computer that let’s someone use paddles to input letters via morse code. If I understand correctly one paddle is short(dit) /the other long(dah). Anyway, there […]

Digital Transition Done | Morse Code Ringtones

Saturday, June 13th, 2009

Well, the digital tv transition here in the US has happened. If nothing else maybe we can stop hearing all those PSA’s !!! For something completely different – I’m launching a ringtones site. You know most phones these days accept mp3 files that can be assigned to different people in your address book. The idea […]

Code keyer kits

Tuesday, April 24th, 2007

Yes… I know, I’ve really delved into some pretty complex build from scratch ideas in a short time here. I guess, in looking at amateur radio, I’ve seen the $$ signs add up for the equipment I’m interested in and have started looking at what other options are out there. Kit building is one, and […]

Amateur Radio

Tuesday, February 27th, 2007

I haven’t got an Amateur Radio (Ham) license (yet) but every so often I get the interest to.

There is the The American Radio Relay League as a great online reference. (I’ve […]

Monday, February 19th, 2007

Just as a followup… I thought I’d post that I did test today for my amateur radio license and passed Element’s 1, 2 and 3 (that’s 5 WPM Morse, Technician and General). So, within a couple days I should show up in the FCC ULS as a General Licensed Amateur Radio Operator…. MANY thanks to […]

More about morse code

Tuesday, February 13th, 2007

I know, maybe a dead horse in a regulatory sense, but… it’s STILL one of the best modes for long range, low power radio contacts. (And kind of neat to know…) I remember when I was little I got a set of walkie-talkies for Christmas. There was a morse key and the code engraved in […]

More amateur radio testing (and morse)

Tuesday, February 13th, 2007

Yes, I know as of late February the morse requirement for ANY licensing as an amateur will be done, but it’s still useful to know. How about identifying those repeater call signs you hear broadcast in morse? There are other reasons though as well. It’s a fairly neat and useful communication method. I’ve studied morse […]
