Discovering the radio spectrum.

Join me on a journey through the airwaves with Amateur Radio
 

Find me on APRS

Find 2M0SQL via APRS, you might even be lucky to find him out cycling.

Its normally only on during the summer or when I jump packets through a spacecraft but hey you never know!

Weather Station

Anyone who knows me will know I have a thing about weather, in the back garden I have a cheap WH1080 weather station connected to a Raspberry Pi Zero which uploads its data and tweets every 30 mins.

Live Logbook

The 2M0SQL logbook is available online in real time, using my own web based logging application called Cloudlog

Twitter

You might have guessed that I’m quite picky what ends up this website, however, I’m well known for sprouting rubbish on Twitter @2m0sql 24×7 so you might find that interesting.
