Amateur Radio "HAM"
9am N6NFI Talk Net simulcast:
Microphone and Camera optional, connected to KR6DD echo link audio feed.
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

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.
ATV is Amateur Television broadcast and receiving.
- Noise Bridge R-15
- QRP CW Transceiver
- Speach/Accessibility friendly HT Radiooddity GD-77
Works ideally suspended horizontally above the ground. Inverted V is also common with greater then 90 degree spread.
Bay Area Repeaters
VHF 2m (144-148 Mhz)
Testing uplink and downlink analog capabilities starting on the 2 meter band, the following stations have been confirmed working from the East Bay with relatively low power setups.
