Straight To Ale

Folks used to tell me that if I didn’t change my ways,
I’d go straight to ale.
I may have finally figured out what they meant…

MonkeynautIPA-CanLabel

Some seriously good tasting IPA.

You would think I would have found this before now,
but this is currently my favorite local beer.
Get Some, Try It. WoW .!.

Thanks  /;^)

What?_Another blog?_

Almost as though I had too much stuff for just one blog . . .

NetSysHax blog with Wireshark header image

NetSysHax is a blog that was established to offer technical stories and solutions that seem relevant. Alex & I work together during our day jobs, but we both like to offer consulting services when those opportunities arrive. We like to share technical insight and solutions, especially when most problems only need the right tools to become a success story.
Self Promotion needs to be a success story too.

I need to post more stuff on the NetSysHax blog, as well as on this one, my RadioActive site. So bear with me as I work on both in parallel (with appropriate cross-links).
Thanks.. Please visit often for new stuff

HI Juno

This should be fun.

Digital Satellite Ops reference

It has not been recently that I have posted anything particularly relevant to ham radio. I don’t find as much time lately to play with the radios either.
I do however, try to follow several special-interest groups that have internet email distribution lists. Overnight I received an email item from VE6MVP, referencing a research project I have not heard of : Shadow-beacon. In particular, Tony was looking for additional reference on digital operations via satellite. The Shadow-beacon project intends to utilize the APRS infrastructure that is already in place and operational on the International Space Station (as well all over the planet surface via the Internet).

With this in mind I thought I would create a simple page, that provides linkage to several resources that I use on a regular basis. There are surely lots of additional pages that are just as relevant, perhaps you will post some of your favorites in the comment section below. Aside from having equipment setup to operate APRS digital, we need to know what satellites are available, and when and where to listen. Hopefully these links will help answer some questions you may have.
