Long distance radio networks by using TCP/IP over AX.2500: Radio/Large Area Networks

Antennas

Antenna plans, antenna notes, antenna designs

What is the deal with all of these antenna things, a simple antenna explained

Radio/Antennas

CW

Morse code, writeups explaining morse code, prosigns, practice conversing in morse code

Conversations and shorthand

Radio/CW Prosigns

Radio/CW Conversations

Category:CW

SDR

Software-defined radio is a huuuge topic. A few subcategories:

  • Gnuradio
  • Decoding signals
  • Digital modes
  • Digital CW
  • Mobile DX
  • Remote listening/operating

The general sdr page:

SDR Software:

Arduino and Raspberry Pi

Ham radio applications for microcontrollers like the Arduino and Raspberry Pi:

Raspberry Pi projects from KO4BB: http://www.ko4bb.com/getsimple/index.php?id=electronics

Web SDR

Tune into different bands, show different aspects from the Novice, Tech, and General license manuals

Listen in on some code, show what CQ sounds like and pick out aspects of conversations

Tune into particular bands, listen in, use them to illustrate particular topics and explore them.

Digital modes

Gradually making progress on uncovering how, exactly, digital modes work.

Radio/Digital Modes

There are multiple digital modes, so I'm learning about each, one at a time.

Large Area Networks

Setting up networks for sensor data acquisition over large distances:

Power

Like antennas - but with power. Explanation of some power supplies and power designs. Basic power supply design. What is this stuff. Etc.

HF

Working HF, different bands, information

Propagation

Moonbounce

Rig Control

Arduino, satellite tracking, etc.

Electronics to control antennas.
