December 16, 2021 General Meeting Follow Up

Thanks to Catherine (and Carl) from Seattle ACS for presenting to us!

Here’s a link to the entire meeting: https://youtu.be/DtBY2Kfnvy4

Here’s a link to the 10 minute video I made about GPS dongles: https://youtu.be/DtBY2Kfnvy4

Here’s the GPS dongle that the principal Winlink developer uses: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B008200LHW?th=1

Here’s the GPS dongle that I use: half the price or twice as many dongles: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B078Y52FGQ/

A list of “open data APIs”, I don’t know if any (other than breweries) require location: https://github.com/public-apis/public-apis

This is the custom Winlink template that I wrote to use the GPS location to get a list of the nearest breweries. Save it as “C:\RMS Express\Global Folders\Templates\breweries.txt”

Type: Winlink
To: Inquiry
Subj: Breweries Request

Msg:
https://api.openbrewerydb.org/breweries?by_dist=<latitude>,<longitude>

From the chat, Dallas asked “who has DStar or Fusion?” I don’t have either DStar or Fusion, and I don’t know of any MIRO member who does. If you do, please contact me and I’ll share that information with Dallas and the team.

Here’s an obituary for Guy Yollen, KG7EGY

Thanks to all and finally, best wishes for a Happy Holiday and a better 2022!

Cheers,

Bob
