ABC: E-waste is overflowing landfills. At one sprawling Vietnam market, workers recycle some of it https://abcnews.go.com/International/wireStory/waste-overflowing-landfills-sprawling-vietnam-market-workers-recycle-109892591

@ai6yr funny how there are always network switches in the company ewaste bin. Never had a need for them tho.

Looks like I'll be setting up HF Mobile soon. At least just on 40 meters. Now I have the question, where to place my Morse key...

Well. Gorgeous weather all week while I'm working.

@kelvin0mql @quantensalat @ai6yr @KC8JC a couple days ago there was a solar CME event...

Copying from N7UN's post in NA-SOTA Slack:

ALERT: X-Ray Flux exceeded M5
Threshold Reached: 2024 Apr 30 2343 UTC
NOAA Scale: R2 - Moderate
Expect solar space junk about 72 hrs later, meaning this weekend could be a geomagnetic mess.

Is it weird that my home assistant can see the distance to Rivian keys in the neighborhood?

@tsherrygeo@mastodon.radio avatar

@ai6yr hmmm. I'm not even sure how I'm getting these as my home assistant is on a pi3b next to my router at the back of my house.

@douglasvb I was cackling to myself the whole time I was designing it 😆

@ai6yr @douglasvb I was in HRO a couple days ago, so yes 😆

@ai6yr @douglasvb 6" jumper: $25!
10" jumper: $28!

Slightly exaggerating, maybe.

@KC8JC @N4JAW looks like a similar design to the Pacific antennas tuner. I should take mine out more.

Hmmm, looks like my flight home from Houston next week is at 8 pm. There's a POTA site not far from the hotel. Maybe I will bring a radio.

@N4JAW looks like the KH1 is going in the bag!

Funny enough, the last time I flew with it, it sailed through TSA. They were VERY concerned about my work laptop.

@tsherrygeo@mastodon.radio avatar

@N4JAW @Geojoek what band do you usually work Texas on in the afternoon? I'd love to arrange a QSO with you both.
I probably wouldn't be OTA until 2 or 3 pm CDT.

I'm thinking I'll have the KH1 with whip antenna.

tsherrygeo,
@tsherrygeo@mastodon.radio avatar

@N4JAW @Geojoek I understand, we're getting towards that thunderstorm season in Bend as well. Last year it was a lot of up and down with my painters pole mast.

I still have you in my ham alert, but haven't heard you yet in my qth.

@enobacon Do you mean different bikes? or how many times on a bike?

Note for next time: movie theaters show exactly 25 minutes of ads and previews before the movie starts.

Also, need to start an earplug vending machine business.

Yay! Finally, the vehicle won't start at all... rather than being intermittent. New starter or cables needed, likely. Has been spotty for months, but neither I nor my mechanic had been able to diagnose it since it was so intermittent. Intermittent car problems are worse than car problems.

@exador23 @ai6yr @steter @rcpierce the staff were super helpful and gave me loaner tools. Started with replacing the belt, then the battery (it was about due anyway), and finally the alternator. That fixed it. AutoZone staff even let me wash up with their orange stuff in the staff bathroom. After being up since 11pm the night before, I was finally on my way home.
