Welcome to the internet QTH of MW0MWZ.

I'm proud to say that I am a member of GW6GW, "Blackwood & District Amateur Radio Society", click Here to see the GW6GW Website.


If you are visiting here you will probably already know that I am an amateur radio operator based in Wales (UK).


On the pages contained in this site you will find some information on my setup, amateur radio in general, some usefull documents with information on antenna design and much more.


On the projects page you will find some information on whatever I happen to be working on at the moment. Well that was true but projects have stalled in favour of sorting the shack out at the moment, plus the shackfeed and website in general are projects on their own HI.


I hope you have as much fun checking out this website as I have had creating it.

Pi-Star V3.4.1 ReleasedTue 4th Jul 2017 01:02 BST

It's finally happened, 3.4.1 has been released, I'd been trying not to release images at quite the previous release cycle pace, and its been almost a month since the last new build, but there was finally a reason to get another build out; Pi-Star now has remote control! Much like the features in DStarRepeater, Pi-Star now has similar remote- control abilities for MMDVMHost, giving keepers the ability to restart services, or the whole OS. However, that is not the limit of the possibilities, if you can call it from a script, you can call that script over RF, now thats giong to be some fun!



Pi-Star V3.3.7 ReleasedFri 19th May 2017 11:47 BST

Pi-Star V3.3.7 brings some interesting changes to the back end, ircDDBGateway now only runs when it needs to, rather than all or the time. The update process, has been overhauled and simplified, still some work to do here but its getting to be much better than it was. The major improvements are in the dashboard, 20170519 brings some extra functionality for P25 and YSF users, the start reflectors for both modes can now be set from the dashboard. Timezone related issues with using Pi-Star outside of UTC/BST should now be a thing of the past. If you havnt yet done so, join the facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/pistar/ and let me know what you thing of Pi-Star and what we can do to make it better for you!
