    My wife and I just attended a Hamcram session and passed the exam! Hope to have our licenses in a couple of weeks and then attend (at least listen) to the weekly Net. Thank you for organizing the event.

    Great net. I tried to get on but I have yet to be registered with echolink. I listened part way on the conference line but it dropped me after about 7 minutes. I will try to look you up again next week. Thanks for getting HAM into the conversation. A large number of people in OB here in Orange County, California are getting licenced and learning the ropes. Look forward to future talks.

    Here's foldable solar panels in the U.S.: https://p3solar.com/p3-portables/
    I almost purchased one of the 75W ones last year - I preferred the idea of a foldable one because i thought it would be easier to pack away, that's before somebody else told me the tip about storing a semi-flex inside the RTT. Instead of picking up the 75W folding panel for about $400 i was able to get a more performant 100W semi-flex panel for less than $300

    Troubleshooting firewalls is a PITB, Finally got echolink working!

    Just discovered that my usb headset/mic combo doesn't work anymore therefore we are halfway there.

    Can someone tell me how the PTT works on the PC. I think I blocked the Grits Guys for a minute when i was testing EchoLink. do you hold it down, talk then release the spacebar or tap it once, talk, then tap again to stop TXing.
