As if I didn’t have enough to do already, I’ve started using Twitter again. Now, I’ve always been on Twitter. As you can see from the cute, little birdie icon in the left-hand column of this page, you can follow me there, but it’s been a passive participation. I have this blog set up to send a “tweet” whenever I create a new post.
Now, however, I’m more actively tweeting. Last night, for example, I tweeted, “Calling CQ on 10.115 MHz.” The tweet didn’t result in any QSOs, but one guy did reply, “I think that only works if you’re using a radio :)”
Although my Twittering last night didn’t result in any new QSOs, I did find a few items of interest:
- What Determines How Far Your Signal Goes? This article appears in Radio World, a magazine for broadcast radio engineers. Radio is radio, though, so many articles—like this one—will be of interest to ham radio operators.
- @ednmagazine. This is the Twitter id for EDN, a trade magazine for electronics engineers. Follow them, and you’ll get tweets about all kinds of interesting electronics things.
- With Varying Frequency – Amateur Radio Ponderings. This is the blog of Steve, K9ZW. It’s good stuff.
I don’t know for how long I’ll be active on Twitter, but chances are for quite a while this time.
