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 3.3.0 ReleasedFri 10th Mar 2017 10:57 GMT

The new build of Pi-Star is out, no apparent issues found during beta testing. This should mark a distinct change in the release schedule, with the binaries, dashboard and OS being updated automatically, there are now less reasons to have to update the image on your Raspberry Pi. The download size has suffered slightly, now tipping the scales at just over 500MB but, I can live with that.



Pi-Star V3.3.0 Coming SoonWed 8th Mar 2017 13:47 GMT

Version 3.3.0 brings a whole new update process to the party. With this new release, the release cycle will finally get much longer, so I should be able to get back to one release every few weeks / months, rather than 5 releases a week. The new version bosts self updating of the OS, Dashboard, Radio software and Hosts files used by ircDDBGateway, brining (finally) a solution you can install, and just not worrey about - it will keep it's self updated. I even added an update button to the dash just in case you really want to make sure its up to date right now. So where next from here? Right now 3.3.0 is being beta-tested, with an expected release date of Friday May 10th, after that the base image should be getting relitivly few updates (I hope) with most of the work being focussed on the dashboard.
