Getting in to Ham Radio

I decided to pick up a new quarantine hobby besides playing Fallout 4: Amateur radio. I won’t be posting a bunch of radio stuff here because I want to dedicate a site specifically to that. I also have done a bit of traveling, and I want to document my adventures there too. I did a similar thing with writing about telephones. I didn’t want to clutter up my personal blog with a bunch of radio or telephone shit.

It turns out that Amateur radio has a lot of overlap with computers. Hams are big into Raspberry Pi’s and I even found a VOIP service specifically for hams!

There is a lot of electronics in amateur radio as well, which is a real weak point for me. I have messed with Arudinos a bit, but I’ve mostly stuck to computers. It’s a fascinating hobby, full of different things to learn about antennas, batteries, and even connecting computers over a radio.
