Last Man Standing QSL Card

Just got the QSL card from Last Man Standing :-)


2021-04-05 ICOM IC-705
ICOM IC-705 transceiver

This wasn't really planned but I bought an ICOM IC-705! I was looking on Craigslist for something else and ran across a listing for an ICOM IC-705 that apparently had been running for a couple of months. The asking price was reasonable but was still a couple of hundred dollars more than I wanted to spend so I made an offer that was more affordable to me, but without expecting it to be accepted. The offer was accepted! Turns out the seller didn't live too far from me and had bought the ICOM along with a lot of other accessories over Christmas but didn't have time to use it. I'll go into what I ended up buying in another post but it really was a very very good deal.


2021-04-02 Clearnode Vulnerability Testing

The Clearnode is running on the network so I spent some time running a vulnerability assessment on it just to see what I may have let loose on the home network :-). The results are here
I also ran similar tests on the Pi-Star hotspots here.
