I'll be even a little more distracted tonight than usual so I'm popping in now to see what fun programming things people are into tonight. I've been helping with the webdev classes at school and if my class gets out early, that's what I'll be doin' tonight too.

Is there a type of radio that you want to go into?
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Oct 10 2017 21:11
right now I have a cobra 25 cb radio and a baofeng uv-5rv2+ which handles 2 meter and 70cm I want to get an icom 5100 which is also 2m 70cm and maybe eventually an icom mobile HF rig

@G7470
Oct 10 2017 21:12
Some of that is mumbo jumbo to me, lol - but it sounds really cool

@ccziriak
Oct 10 2017 21:13
just watched that zooming way over my head too
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Oct 10 2017 21:14
icom is the manufacturer 2m 70cm are wavelengths and HF is high frequency which includes the 160 meter 80 meter 40 meter 30 meter 20 meter 17 meter 15 meter 12 meter 10 meter and 6 meter wavelengths
ccz
@ccziriak
Oct 10 2017 21:17
so your call sign is your handle, and the radio you mentioned can transmit/receive on all those different frequency ranges?
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Oct 10 2017 21:18
right so when you get your license the fcc issues a call sign that you must identify with every 10 minutes and at the end of a conversation. There are three license classes depending on which license you have determines where you can transmit so right now I only have some of those mostly 2m 70cm but once i pass the next license I'll be able to use all of those

I've been on cb for about 20yrs that's unlicensed right now I have a cobra 25 in my car that i've turned up the transmit power on and boosted the modulation I also have a 9 foot antenna on my car for cb I hit about 30-40 miles with that

Oct 10 2017 21:23
yep probably the cheapest radio available 35 dollars and I can use a metric shit ton of repeaters
I might try to get Matt into it too, he listens to an SDR already

Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Oct 10 2017 21:36

@G7470
Oct 10 2017 22:44
Going pretty well - just need a few more core functions done, and then I can start applying the front end views
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Oct 10 2017 22:53
if you have anything sharable at next mtg you attend, that would be fun to see .
G7470
@G7470
Oct 10 2017 22:54

Lily Romano
@Lilyheart

apparently gitter didn't see fit to give me notifications for a while
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Oct 10 2017 23:00
id say rude but i haven't seen a notification in months with rare exception. I got @SimplyPhy 's tag earlier, but that was is [I'm tagging him just so he has to scroll through the history to find this message]
gitter notifs are so busted
G7470
@G7470
Oct 10 2017 23:00
That can happen - happens to me all the time with Gittsr
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Oct 10 2017 23:21
:( we should move to discord or slack lol
G7470
@G7470
Oct 10 2017 23:29
Lol
I've used slack before - that's pretty nice. Never used discord though
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Oct 10 2017 23:34
Looked at them before. There are a myriad of reasons why we are here. Too much a pain to explain here though.
Might get some new people in the chat soon! Just talked to the web dev class down the hall.
G7470
@G7470
Oct 10 2017 23:36
Oh nice!
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Oct 10 2017 23:38
@lantech19446 I haven't even had time to relog into slack on the new phone. Too many other things have taken priority.

didn't go to the movies. VPS upgrade/migration done and ironing out SSL issues
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Oct 10 2017 23:42
oooooh that's a pain. I'm glad my stuff is just on autopilot right now.

looks like SSL certificates are reissued and working but can's ssh in to server
can's=can't
Jonathan Herman

Have to find the language that works for you xD
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Oct 10 2017 23:50
have to find the motivation to give a damn about doing it too, i'm back in that hole
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Oct 10 2017 23:51
Go back in your hole Phy!

Oct 10 2017 23:51
eric to be honest I hate discord I have 2 friends on it I'm in a ham radio group on one account and some naughty stuff on the other, I really prefer slack but i also prefer to be told when someone sends a message lol
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Oct 10 2017 23:52
I bet we could create something in house. @MontBot might be able to push something somehow... you'd think.
Someone needs to connect virtual @MontBot to physical MontBot so we can control them in the chat room xD
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Oct 10 2017 23:53
lol
right now i can barely write the words in English let alone code anything so that might not be tonight. I'm pretty damn high right now
actually kinda hope this wears off by 9, i took two muscle relaxers for my neck and i am just flying right now
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Oct 10 2017 23:58
how would we push these notifications. What is the way to receive on the client end?
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Oct 10 2017 23:58
that would depend on whether you're using gitter app or gitter web
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Oct 10 2017 23:59
this would be in house something, we can't do anything with gitter app or web.
MontBot could push something... somehow....
Jonathan Herman
@lantech19446
Oct 10 2017 23:59
o ok thought maybe they had an api
Lily Romano
@Lilyheart
Oct 10 2017 23:59
yes and no. even if we could get into their notification system, it's busted.
