Just a quick heads up: I have just released a new and open source rig controller for the Elecraft KX-line: Wizkers:Radio. Compatible with any software that supports the hamlib rigctld protocol, and of course works in standalone mode too.

Systems: Windows, MacOS, Linux, and Android. You will need a USB OTG cable on your phone/tablet, or use a Pignology Piglet to connect to your devices.

Wizkers:Radio supports the KX3, KXPA100 and PX3, and even the XG3 if you own one.

Looking forward to your comments!
We are very happy to announce the release of Wizkers:Radio on the Android Store and the Chrome store. Wizkers:Radio is a version of Wizkers that is dedicated to HAM Radio operators, and supports a lot of Elecraft equipment: KX3, KXPA100, PX3 and XG3. It also provides experimental support for the Sark110, only as a Chrome app. In our very unbiased opinion, Wizkers:Radio is one of the most advanced, and certainly the best looking HAM r...

On my way back from a week with the +Safecast team in Japan - API Hackaton, and week-end in Fukushima, doing a bGeigie build workshop at Aizu university, and helping with the install of a Pointcast sensor in Odaka, Minami Soma, Fukushima Pref. It's housed by Wada-san who runs the cowork space "Odaka Worker's Base" in anticipation of return of evacuees next spring. The Odaka station is also re-open, making Odaka much more accessible. The dual sensor is mounted above the entrance and radiation levels will be visible from the street and on http://realtime.safecast.org/ (sensors 100081-2)

Yeah, this totally calls for APRS, imho :) Fortunately fiber optic internet links still work in the exclusion zone.

This whole VW scandal really makes a good case for more open source software and code disclosure!

Good thinking +Louis Lafargue  :)

Great feature by NYTimes this week-end. One of the even darker aspects of the Greek shipping industry.
Few places on earth are as free from legal oversight as the high seas. One ship has been among the most persistent offenders.

Just a heads up, I have just released a new rig controller that primarily works with the Elecraft KX line KX3, KXPA100 and PX3 as well as the XG3 RF generator. It also supports the Sark110 antenna analyzer as a bonus.

The XG3 mode gives you access to all the RTTY/CW beacon functions which are not present in the Elecraft version of the utility.

You can use either direct serial/USB connection to your Elecraft devices, or use a Wifi converter like the Pignology Piglet, which is how I usually connect.

This is a universal Chrome packaged app which runs on pretty much any computer as long as you can install Chrome on it. And is also works on Android - OK with phones and tablets, though the larger the screen, the more comfortable. It still does a good job at adjusting to the screen size.

Wizkers:Radio supports a lot of unique capabilities such as a graph of most radio and amplifier parameters, PX3 screenshots, a quick "memory card" system for each KX3 band as well as support for the PKX3 PSK-D and FSK-D modes.

You also get a pretty advanced configuration screen that will allow you to adjust most audio settings as well as all band-dependent settings in just a couple of clicks.

And one last thing: Wizkers:Radio is fully open source, head over to wizkers.io to learn more about the underlying framework!

How easy is it to create a power monitor with Wizkers.io? Very easy!
Power monitoring: one project in one day. So we get asked the question, “how easy is it to use Wizkers for my own sensor project” ? The answer is “very easy”. This post describes a new Wizkers project from start to finish, which took one Sunday to put together.

Don't you just love it when you ask an audio equipment vendor for documentation on their protocol and their reply is "sorry, this is a proprietary patented low-latency audio protocol that we cannot disclose" ?

Don't you love it even more when you fire up Wireshark for the sake of it and see that the equipment in question does HTTP requests with "GStreamer souphttpsrc libsoup/2.43.1" in the user-agent field, and just gets a 256kbps MP3 back from the "audiophile" server - the whole song at once - for playback ? Then just standard UDP for player control...

Come on :-)

Wizkers.io on Hackaday! Besides the fact I really like the +FriedCircuits  USB tester/power logger, Hackaday says lots of nice things about http://wizkers.io/ , so I am very happy to see my project getting this sort of endorsement.

Thanks +William Garrido for this collaboration, it's been a fun ride!

Very nice place, stayed here on our way to Los Angeles, great stopover if you're taking the scenic route. Location is pretty unique, staff was friendly, food on the expensive side but very good, and the rooms were fine too.

Very sloppy, for small parts especially the store is a mess... Items are stacked seemingly randomly, price at checkout is just as random... Not worth wasting your time on, there are better choices around.
