Well, I hadn't done a thing to this site since September of 2000! Until now that is. Why you ask? Well the main reason is that I've been having way too much fun on Napster! You know the mp3 file sharing service the RIAA idiots who have no brains whatsoever are trying to shut down. What the RIAA doesn't realize is two things though. Well more than 2 but these are a couple. First shutting down Napster won't stop file sharing! Second, Mp3's are just audio which means they're not restricted to just music! I should know I have speeches, and even some stuff I did myself that isn't music at all! Note: The link above contains Napster 2.0 beta 5 as well as Napigator which allows you to access over 300 and counting privately owned opennap Napster servers with your Napster client! If you'd like to see the latest version of Napster though please go to the main Napster site.
I have also been fiddling with a cool utility called Total Recorder. With this utility you can literally record any audio from the internet you want! To find out more about this great program go to the total recorder web site at http://www.highcriteria.com
I am a member of two amateur radio clubs. The ECRA (East county repeater association), and the UHF associates or ZOD group. We call UHF associates ZOD because the callsign of the repeater is WB6ZOD, so therefore it's easier to call us by our nick name of ZOD than UHF associates. Here are some links you should check out at least once:
And speaking of QRZ, here are a few direct callsign look ups you can try your hand at directly from this site! my callsign Max, KF6MTF net control of the catalina Amateur repeater association's Young people's net held each Wednesday from 7 P.M. to 8 P.M. on 147.090 MHZ with a plus offset and no CTCSS (PL) tone required. Mike KF6UZN who is net control of the 10 meter net for young hams which occurs Saturdays from 10 to 11 A.M. on 28.470 MHZ. This net use to be controlled by another Mike, KF6RYT who mysteriously disappeared. All young hams ages 21 and under are more than welcome to check in to this net. Even third party traffic is welcome. The HF young hams net was originally my idea, but since I don't have HF here at the home QTH, I couldn't even check in! Now if you'd like to quickly look up a call on QRZ from here, well feel free to do so below.
For those interested, there is an Internet remote base with full tranceive capabilities! It is located in Boston MA and is owned by Keith Lamonica, W7DXX. Check out all the action at the W7DXX remote base site
I would love to hear from you regarding any comments you have about this page. Just email me with any comments and/or questions you may have for me.
Whatever you do, enjoy and have fun! Oh and if you're interested in transfering your files over the internet or your local network, try using serv-U FTP server, my favorite FTP server! This server supports quota, upload download ratios, and much much more! Of course you can also use it as a basic FTP server as well. to learn all about the serv-U FTP server, visit the serv-U ftp server main site
One of the neat things about amateur radio is you never know what new idea someone might come up with. I've recently discovered probably the neatest thing yet in amateur radio. It's called IRLP or Internet Radio linking project. With the IRLP network, a ham in California can chat with a ham in Canada or Pensylvania over vhf/uhf frequencies! How's this possible you ask? well by using the internet itself to link repeaters together, the possibilities or virtually limitless! With IRLP a user can either contact any one node individually or can connect to a reflector which can have several other nodes connected to it, allowing for a number of irlp nodes to talk to each other at the same time, great meeting place. To find out more about IRLP and how neat and awesome it is, check out the IRLP main site and find out how interesting it is.
Want to hear a sample of how IRLP works? If so then
download the IRLP demo file and take a listen.
It's about 30 minutes long and show's very nicely how awesome IRLP really is!
One thing I really have fun doing is chatting online. I've recently started playing around with speak freely a program that allows voice chatting. I'm just beginning to experiment with it, so I'm not by any means an expert on it.
