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 Version 4.1.0Thu 26th Mar 2020 11:09 GMT

Available for download from today, version 4.1.0 is available for Raspberry Pi hardware. All the Pi-Star features you know and love, plus a new operating system, moving Pi-Star to the the newer "Buster" OS. 4.1.0 has the most up-to-date versions of all of the software used for digital comms, including some customised versions in some cases including DMR2YSF cross-over code that should help those users using reflectors that link back to WiresX. Cross-Over modes are generally better in Pi-Star 4.1.x and have much improved code, making it possible to drive the YSF platform from the radio, such that when you use a YSF2xxx cross-over mode, the commands are properly passed into the sub mode. For example using YSF2DMR, you can choose the YSF2DMR mode from your Yaesu radio, and then choose the talk group and link to it. This makes using these cross-over modes a joy rather than a hastle. The move to "Buster" has been painfull, issues with time sync and WiFi and Pi4 hardware support was troublesome, however every cloud has a silver lining and the lessons we learned here will be crucial to Pi-Star versions in the future.
