It's getting harder to find English language content on SW but this'll get you started.

Re: Guide to decoding POCSAG on Linux

Nice.
2400 baud doesn't appear to be used on Australian networks so you'd get a bit of a performance boost by not having Multimon try to decode it.

If it's not one of those things then post it in one of the other, more appropriate areas such as the M...

Foundation Licenses callsign options survey

Foundation licencees (FL) have recently been granted digital modes by ACMA. However, the four-letter suffix callsigns used by FL are not fully compatible with many popular radio data programs, such as FT8, APRS and D-STAR. Clearly, FL need a callsign with a three-letter suffix. RASA and the WIA have...

Re: Baofeng DM-1701 first impressions

Nice review.

Doesn't look like Chirp supports the radio yet but if/when it does, it'll make programming it so much easier!

Re: Streaming DFES scanner audio

Thanks. Yep, my virtual server host has been suffering network issues today. I've lodged support tickets, now just have to wait for them to fix it.

Use http://stream.warsug.info:8000
That way I can change DNS records as required to point to a working server.

Re: 6AR Interference

I think it's a fault with channel 380 (Red Hill), as I had to change the main stream over to 6IP again as this repeater that I normally use was doing the half the conversation audio thing at about the same time as the noise.

Alpha tags on DFES audio stream

Hi Folks. I have been working on a little project here and have now enabled "alpha tags" on the DFES stream. Since there are 4 radios connected to it, it can be hard to work out what's being said. To help, and if your streaming app supports it, the stream will now show the current VHF high and midba...

Re: Streaming DFES scanner audio

The 6AR / command channel I use has some sort of fault that is only relaying one side of conversations. I've changed it to a 6IP for now, but might have a noisier signal.
