Over on YouTube user k2nccvids has posted two videos showing how he was able to decode High Frequency Data Link (HFDL) packets using the RTL-SDR, Ham-it-up upconverter, MultiPSK and HFDL Display.

My first custom-made publicly available thing: a retention ring removal tool for my HexBright flashlight. http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:302502

The lip prevents the plastic from coming into direct contact with the TIR lens, thereby avoiding scratches. It also makes replacing the retaining ring easier, because it prevents the tool from sliding all the way through it. Curiously, the official tool omits this feature.

The OpenSCAD model is entirely parametric and can be easily modified to support other flashlights that use retaining rings.
