Time to face facts

As much as I don't want to admit defeat, reality is slapping me hard in the face. It's been three months since our much loved little girl Maisie didn't come home. Your disappearance has had such a devastating impact on all of us (Clare, Nicholas & myself) I miss you Maisie, I love you even […]

42 Days

As I've previously posted on here that our much loved moggie Maisie is missing, I can't believe that it's been 42 days since I last cuddled her and told her how much I love her and that she's my best friend, whilst giving her a pat and kisses on her head (and listening to her […]

Still Nothing of Maisie 😢

It's now been 16 days since Maisie disappeared. We've done two letterbox drops of the street and I've been searching the local tracks close to our house and I've found nothing. No clumps of fur on the ground, no blood trails, it's just like she vanished. Although I will never stop looking for Maisie, it's […]

Maisie is Missing 😢

6am Tuesday morning Maisie was let outside and has not returned home. This is very unusual behaviour as she usually is back inside no later than 12pm. For food and a sleep. I'm devastated that she's not come home.

Got Packet Loss?

Well I'm pretty sure it's time to get a new router! There shouldn't be any red in this picture!

Radioddity GD-73A

The GD-73A (TYT MD-430) is a low powered dual timeslot UHF DMR/FM radio that's recently been released for the amateur radio use. I believe that the original purpose of this radio was to fill the Family Radio System or the European 446MHz short range with limited power and a fixed antenna. However Radioddity are targeting […]

Anna Calvi – Odeon Theatre Hobart

I first discovered Anna on YouTube back in 2012 where she did a series of songs in the "attic sessions" What caught my attention was the way she was playing the guitar that was almost like it was a harp by using a circular motion when strumming the chords. The other thing was the sound […]

Nextion 3.5 screen for Hotspots

I've used Pi-star now for around a year and a half. The first screen I used with the Zumspot was a 0.96" OLED screen (I thought it was awesome!) but after a while I started seeing other amateur radio guys were using the Nextion screen/s These are an amazing piece of equipment they run on […]

Yaesu FTM-7250D

New radio day (well two days ago) I've been lucky enough to have been bought (birthday) the Yaesu FTM-7250D to replace the Yaesu FT-90R that has been in the car for almost as long as I've owned it! So far I'm impressed with the radio and its operation is almost identical to the Yaesu FT-70D […]

Pi-star Facebook Group & Forum

*** Warning contains strong language and views *** Pi-star is a great hotspot operating system for the raspberry pi and a few other SoC (System on Chip) that has been embraced to pretty much be the standard for multi mode digital voice. But there's a very dark side to the small group of people who […]
