    G'day from VK3ACP QF12vj in Ballarat Australia.

    G'day Dave! QF56oc here; right on the edge of the city.

    I'm pretty sure we've spoken before though, right?

    G'day Jared,

    I don't think we have. I don't do as much phone on HF as I should. COVID-related suboptimal station setup is my excuse. And by that, I mean I got my license during COVID and haven't yet ever had an experienced HAM around to tell me just how fubar my set up actually is. High noise floor. High tech house with LED everything (including the reef tank a few feet from me), rack full of server gear and a massive UPS on the other side of the wall. A few ferrites aren't quite enough for this job. Still, on occasion I manage a HF QSO that isn't old mate over the back fence who I've listened to while connected to a dummy load.
    If you do SSTV on 40m, you might have seen me about though. I do that from time to time if the conditions look like I have a hope of making it out of VK3.

    Likewise. I'm stuck in suburbia with a dipole hung on a pair of flag poles along the boundary much to the neighbours disgust in Ballarat, so about an hour out of Melbourne.

    I'm a senior system administrator, and I deal with mainly hardware (all sitting in DCs) and *nix based systems... though my postgrad was all in cybersec. Will give your smart home video a watch when I get a chance. Straight off the bat from clicking, I see you're doing all the smart things - dedicated VLANs and such, so it's already speaking my language.

    I'll give the DMR video a watch when I get time too. I fiddled with it briefly when I started out but mostly ignored V/UHF as soon as I started getting somewhere with HF. WARS - I know who they are.. at least thanks to the powerpole kits :)

    You've both got more than me up. I had a 20/40m end fed, but it's fallen down and with a house move impending, there's no reason to put it back up for now. For the new place, I'm thinking of making an EFHW from scratch with a 49:1

    Last weekend I did spend some time running a random wire along the building (I really dont have many options), it worked better than anything I'd done from the balcony before but still way less than ideal, I think the plan for now is to go a bit 3YE on it all and get pedestrian HF happening! I've only spent one afternoon on HF so far and that was from Queen Victoria park with VK2GPU.

    I have a little mobile hat antenna (recently replaced the yagi to make it a less obtrusive) on top an old cheap crappy camera monopole (which is cable tied to my balcony rail) which does a good job of local VHF/UHF for the most part, but the building is a faraday cage and there's 4 stories of noise generation above me in every direction.

    I note the name of your BBS and I highly approve.

    As for the ITSec stuff - I try to avoid that side of things these days, left enterprise for sports. The day job is primarilly a python software stack these days and I wear a silly "creative technologist" hat. We're primarilly a content studio with a sports focus, so the core platform is all realtime data to stadium IPTV, LED ribbon & superscreens, but in the last 5 years we've also built experiences in Unity using VR and motion-sensing (a VR cricket game and a running on the spot NRL game), built a full PoC IoT stack for a client from PCB/microcontroller and firmware to web UI (also a realtime dashboard, we got that gig because of our real time sports work). I like the variety. That led to the freelance work I do these days which is live graphics playout, vision mixing or replay operation for in-stadium game-day. Broadcast production is so heavily IT & IP focussed these days, the first thing we stand up in a temp venue is network! It also puts the thrill back into "working production" like we used to do... before DevOps came and made it boring (yes, I was responsible for much DevOps adoption, but it took the fun out running prod systems :P )

    Or you start talking about someone on the air, and they show up, as if
    their ears were burning.

    Then, you have the case where someone you haven't talked to in awhile
    shows up, and it's like "Look what crawled out of the woodwork!" (hi hi).

    Fair. But in my defense, I was giving the presentation, it would have been strange to refer to myself appearing everywhere in the 3rd person. You made a good substitute :P :P :P
