I was the fourth place winner of Radioddity’s 2020 Black Friday raffle. Proceeds from the raffle are to support the ARRL’s spectrum preservation fund — a worthy cause given the fate of the 9cm band. When I received the notification I was a winner I got pretty excited. I was hoping to win a GSOC for my G90 (or even another G90) so I felt a little let down that it was “only” another HT to add to the fleet.
The Ailunce HD1 My prior DMR history First, a quick story so you can get a feel for my DMR experience and know how much salt to take with my review below. When I lived in Rochester MN, I briefly owned a TYT MD-380. It was a great radio, but it had a couple of downsides (not really the radio’s fault.) First, it was UHF only. This wasn’t a problem when I lived in Rochester.
The HD1 CPS running in Wine This article uses just about every Unix worst-practice in the book, but there is a reason for all of them. In this article, we pipe downloaded code directly in to bash as root, run Wine as root, and play around with renaming device nodes.

KU0HN Station as of 7-3-2018. The picture above is my current station setup. On this page I’ll discuss each piece of gear I find interesting. The original layout of my fist HF rig, a Heathkit SB-104A. Heathkit SB-104 This is my first HF rig, a Heathkit SB-104A. It’s no longer mounted in the rack as pictured to the left, but that picture gives a good idea of all the pieces in their original configuration.
