[EXMPERIMENTAL]

LIVE Stream: rtmp://space.noisebridge.info/live/HAMbridge

Open in VLC as network stream (Ctrl + N)

This is a test stream directly from our FPGA based streaming box. It is up most of the time and running a test feed with an HDMI input and overlays with VGA from pegasus showing tmux with performance and weather information. The stream may not start properly, and I sometimes have to try loading it a few times for the video to stream properly. There is audio from Mary piped in but it usually quite. Looking to switch this over to monitor SDR or the like as well.

Want to talk radio or the like, open jitsi meeting available, there may or may not be anybody home: https://jitsi.noisebridge.io/HAM


The main noisebridge hangout is here, and is more likely to have something going on:

Paired with AL-800 (clone) Antenna

HF[edit]

HF stands for High Frequency. In today's RF landscape this is the low end of the frequency band generally from around 3-30Mhz or 160-10 meter wavelength.

Works ideally suspended horizontally above the ground. Inverted V is also common with greater then 90 degree spread.
