While You Played Ham Radio, I Studied the ABBREE – Will It Knife?

One of the first things I thought about when I picked up my first ABBREE antenna was "I wonder if I can turn this into a knife?" Well, did it, or I at least tried to do it.

Product designers! DON’T DO THIS 🤣

Not ham radio, but too ridiculous not to share. I bought this as a bedroom fan and I did not expect this “feature” #lasko xtra air

Quirky APRS, HG-UV98 Lanch NLH Ham Radio Handheld Review

Chinese radios have come a long way, many have impressive feature lists, but those features seem to be stuck behind programming or poorly implemented design. The HG-UV98 seems like a radio that *should* be a fully implemented APRS radio. It can do bluetooth to tablets and computers, it digitpeats and handles weather station information. So how did they forget MESSAGING!? I think its 100% the developers not understanding the value of APRS.

You find the HG-UV98 here: https://www.venus-itech.com/product/hg-uv98-handheld-with-aprs/

Want a *good* FTDI programing cable? Consider: https://amzn.to/3i5HYeX the 6 in 1 design means you can program most radios with this one kit. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.

Is That Cuban Radio Jammers On 40 Meters Ham Radio?

For almost a week straight there has been an abundance of what looks like intentional radio interference on 40 meters HF ham radio. Is this the work of the Cuban government? Where are the signals originating from?

Using the KiwiSDR network we can get a pretty good idea where the signals are coming from using radio direction finding. http://kiwisdr.com/
