I have several "irons in the fire", but nothing big to post this week. However, I do have several things coming:
My third free PCB from Dangerous Prototypes has shipped and it is a Bus Pirate v3. I tried playing with the Bus Pirate Arduino Shield and Bus Pirate Demo Board. I've not had much luck and I haven't tried troubleshooting it yet. Associated with this, I've updated my Seeed Studio wish list
I printed a PCB for an upconverter that I haven't yet even attempted to build yet. Once I do, It'll make it here. Additionally, I just loaded a desktop with Debian, so expect I'll be talking about doing something with that as well.
It's membership dues time at the club, so I've been working on that. I built an Access database to help handle things, but now I need to sit down and actually do work. Have no fear, I won't post many details about that here :-).
I am getting ready to get into packet radio. I bought a KAM+ a year (or so) ago, and I want to get it up as an APRS IGate. Coverage around my place is pretty crummy, so I would like to improve that. Eventually, I'll probably replace the KAM+ with something else so I can play on packet (and I have some ideas).
I really want to build a QRP transciever. I've been looking at plans so I can find something. However, I may just buy a Rebel and add an e-ink shield to it. It looks like the Rebel Alliance (love the name, BTW) has paved the road to using an LCD screen. I want more and different, and certainly my code would be on GitHub.
I have been wanting to get back into getting frequencies from the Ten Tec Omni. I know this is do-able, but I need to purchase a connector and do more research.
I haven't forgotten about my logging project with the WF32, it's just been on hiatus because of life. I want to get back into that and get back onto HF mobile. I have a few additional thoughts that may be interesting to add.
I've also been blogging a lot more on my other blog. January is a busy in the transportation engineering and planning fields - the Transportation Research Board Annual Meeting is in early January. Just from that and intertwined conversations, I think that's set me up for 8 blog posts, and that's in addition to normal work that sometimes creates blog posts.
Edit: I forgot about one thing: I've been wanting to play on 70 cm a little, so I'll have some antenna builds to show.
