A Basic Stand for the Palm-Radio Keyer

Sometimes it is as easy as 1-2-3, but only if you got the right ideas from you friends. In one of last posts about the new "Palm Single" keyer I was complaining about the lack of a stand provided by the Oms of Palm. After some discussions on the German Qrp-Forum there was an easy solution presented, which I managed to replicate.

Elegance and Simplicity: The "Palm Single" Keyer

Did you ask yourself sometimes why there are two paddles on you keyer?
The Schurr Keyer
You don't do squeeze. You just hit your fingers on the DIT or on the DAH lever, for you never learned it properly. So one lever should be sufficient if on one side there is a DIT and on the other side there is a DAH! You got the chance to test it with the Palm-Radio miniature single lever morse paddle.

Choosing a CW-Keyer for the Palm Radio Single Paddle

Well, Thomas (HB9RML) said, that my plans for the future SOLF+ were ambitious. He may be right, but part of the work is already done or needs to be assembled. But first the good news. My new Single Paddle from Palm Radio arrived today.

Congrats Hannes (DL9SCO) and Dieter (DJ6TE): You did again a very fine job. But more on that subject in an other post. (You know I just got it about an hour ago and I have to do some fine tuning, which takes some time and of course I have to get used to it ;-)

HowTo Install a Web Based Logbook on a BeagleBone

The title is misleading: You can install the Logbook on every Linux computer or CubieBoard 3 or what ever you like. I choose the BeagleBoneBlack for it is my communication server which is thanks to +Bob Mottram and his FreedomeBone concept as secure as a server can get. And this is important, when you store your data on a machine, which accessible from the net. So don't forget to follow the concepts I have explained in my FreedomeBone post.

RoundUp : Installing Ham Radio Software on an ArmHF Based Cubieboard

This post will not concentrate on a HowTo implement, but on HowTo find your way to implement Ham Radio Software. For details, please have a look at the various topics I covered in the last week. Of course you will get a list of what I managed to get it running. The main difficulties I ran in, were not about finding and implementing but how to combine different parameters with another.
