Strive to be happy

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible, without surrender, be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even to the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. 

Avoid loud and aggressive persons; they are vexatious to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. 

Keep interested in your own career, however humble; it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism. 

Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love, for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment,it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself. 

You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive Him to be. And whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace in your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world. Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

Overview of the KrakenRF RF Locator

How The KrakenSDR Located Our Repeater Jammer In 1 Hour distance of 100 KM

Overview of the KrakenRF RF Locator 
In this video I read the story of how we caught the jammer that had been jamming our GMRS repeater for months, and how by using the Kraken SDR Radio Direction Finder (RF locator), we were at his house in 1 hour. The KrakenSDR can track a signal being transmitted from 100Mhz to 1Ghz - so I can track ham repeater jammers, GMRS repeater jammers, ham-radio transmitters, GMRS radios - pretty much any transmitter with a signal strong enough for you to receive. KrakenRF did not send me this KrakenSDR - it was purchased at full price, and I have received nothing in return from Kraken for making this video.


TTBF What is 4K mode on a FTDX10? FT8 ESSB

FTdx10 'ttbf' mode enable

1. Make sure power is off.
2. Find the DNR+ MODE
3. Push and hold DNR+ MODE buttons in while powering the radio via the "ON/OFF" switch.
4.see that "TTBF" has replaced 50-3050 
5.If you wish to go back to 50-3050 just do steps 1to 4.

TTBF = Total Transmitted Bandwidth Frequency

4k of transmitted bandwidth on SSB.....actually......50-4000 khz to be exact. TTBF = Total Transmitted Bandwidth Frequency. It takes the place of 50-3050. You can toggle back and forth between those two choices....TTBF or 50-3050, but you can't have both in the TX BW menu at the same time (unfortunately). Same way with all of the Yaesu radios that do TTBF. You have to toggle the radio on and off holding the DNR and MODE buttons to go back and forth between TTBF and 50-3050 choices.

Please pardon my ignorance, but what is ttbf 4k mode and where is it documented?

why would you use this feature TTBF ?

This is another of the many modes of the hobby that may not be for you or you may have no interest in it................but I'll answer for those that want to know.

First, a caveat/disclaimer : I am NOT a member of the ESSB "crowd". Do I enjoy listening to the FANTASTIC audio that many in that crowd have? Of course. As an Electrical Engineer with over 45 years of experience I can always appreciate technology "on display". I do on occasion....when I hear some of the ESSB crowd on the air....say like on 7.208 Mhz late in the evening...if I join in, sometimesI set my FTDX 101D to TTBF just because I can (the FTDX 10 is relegated to the camper, I only use it when camping). And of course, I'd never do that on a CROWDED band.............

So, why would you use this feature? Just like so many other facets of this great hobby, ESSB is a part of the hobby some enjoy. They enjoy setting up their audio to have superb quality....and those of who open up our receive and have quality radios and THE EARS/HEARING to hear it ....and quality speakers (I'm running an active Edifier monitor speaker feeding a passive Edifier speaker with EQ and a Yaesu SP2000 with a DX Engineering kit that includes the replacement speaker and the foam fill/insert). ....can clearly hear the difference. It sounds FANTASTIC. Why do it? Because they can.
