Happend across Cross Country Wireless APRS messenger about. Week ago. It uses PSK 63 to send APRS type text messages? I'd like to see it in action but I'm not sure who's using it and were. The web pages point to the top of 30m and also 40m in Europe.

Anyone playing in this sandbox?

There is one active station the East cost of North America. I usually put up my station when needed. I'll include a setup and config for APRS Messenger on Ubuntu Linux art some point in my ultra portable digital communications series on YouTube in the next month or so.

(Reuters) - Colonial Pipeline Co shut down its main gasoline and distillates pipelines on Monday after an explosion and fire in Shelby, Alabama, killing a worker and sending five to the hospital - the second time in two months it had to close the crucial supply line to the U.S. East Coast.

A nine-man crew was conducting work on the Colonial pipeline system at the time of the explosion, Alabama Governor Robert Bentley told a briefing. Seven of the crew members were injured, with two evacuated by air.

The explosion occurred when a contract crew hit the gasoline pipeline (Line 1) with a trackhoe, igniting gasoline, Colonial said an e-mailed statement late on Monday.

One worker died at the scene and five individuals were taken to Birmingham-area hospitals for treatment, the company said.

•—•—•

Are these pipeline rupture/spill/explosion stories being under covered? This spring a catastrophic failure of a 30" methane transmission line in western PA, last week an antique liquid petroleum line ruptured in central PA. Why don't I see more of this in relation to say native americans being framed as the bad guys for not wanting a pipeline near them!

Pumpkin beer from Horseheads Brewing.

It's a seasonal, quite a bit more fizzy than I like and very cinnamon for a label proclaiming fermented pumpkin.

+Malachi D I found the studs to be worth the equivalent drag of about 1 bar (14 psi) of tire pressure.
But, to be honest, after a little while you get used to it!

Playing with Raspberry Pi's Pixel OS on an old Acer One Aspire 722. Running live off a 32GB stick it's lightyears ahead of the doggy Windows 7 OS on this thing. Might be the answer to an old boat anchor in the ham shack.

+matt kent I've had some trouble there too. Good programs exist to make live USB's but what do you do when you have a machine with a BIOS that's old enough that the USB isn't featured in the O/S start up line up? The ISO I have is more than the CD-R's I have can take. So here I'm still scratching my head on this old junk box too. Good luck and have fun.

Saw this post on another social media platform:

Hi, my name is Les Kinney and I am a retired federal agent and historical researcher. I am part of a group that will be traveling to a remote atoll in the Marshall Islands in mid-December. Our research concerns the theory that Amelia Earhart ran out of gas and landed wheels down next to a small island at Mili Atoll. There were three local natives who witnessed this landing during the late morning of July 3, 1937. We have found aircraft artifacts on this small island which we believe may have come from Earhart’s Lockheed 10E.
We also believe Earhart broadcast distress messages that were heard for the next several days. These voice transmissions were heard by the U.S. Coast Guard, Navy, three Pan Am listening stations and several radio listeners in the United States, Canada, Nauru, and Australia.
Unfortunately, because of atmospheric conditions, most likely caused by thunder storms, most of the messages were garbled and unreadable. Several radio listeners believed they heard Earhart speaking. Most heard a word or two; some a sentence or more. Some thought they heard partial latitude and longitude coordinates. None heard Earhart report she was at a specific geographic location except one. That person was Nina Paxton, a registered nurse from Ashland Kentucky. Nina had a new Philco console radio and said she heard Earhart around 2 pm Eastern Standard Time on Saturday July 3rd, 1937. Nina reported Earhart saying they were down on a little island at Mili Atoll. Amelia mentioned her navigator, Fred Noonan, was hurt, they were almost out of gas and warned they couldn’t stay there long.
Earhart’s Lockheed Electra was equipped with a 50 watt Western Electric model 13C transmitter. Earhart would have had to have one engine running to transmit. For a variety of technical reasons, she would have likely been transmitting on 6210 kilocycles high on the AM band which was her day time frequency. There is a remote chance she was broadcasting on 3105 kilocycles her night time radio frequency.
We would like everyone’s help. We are going to attempt to duplicate that 1937 transmission from this remote island. We will use Earhart’s identifying call sign of KHAQQ to begin the broadcast. We will broadcast twice: at 12:30 pm or 1230 hours Eastern Standard Time (EST) and again at 1:00 pm EST or 1300 hours on two successive days, December 15, and 16th, 2016. The first broadcast will be on 6210 kilocycles and will last for one minute. We will repeat the message twice, two minutes apart. After the third transmission on 6210 kilocycles, there will be a three minute pause and we will then broadcast the same message on 3105 kilocycles for one minute, three times, with a two minute delay after each message.
We know this is a long shot. We can’t duplicate the atmospheric conditions from July 1937 and there is so much more RF interference in 2016. But it is worth a try. We are asking everyone having a receiver capable of listening to this broadcast to tune in on these frequencies.
Whether you have an old 1930’s radio, or a modern radio with short wave capabilities, keep your cell phone cameras and video cameras ready to capture the moment. Flash the camera on your set and then to yourself while you record our broadcast. If you’re lucky enough to pick up the transmission, you will likely get five seconds of fame on a future TV documentary.
If you do receive our Earhart recreated broadcast and capture the message on your cell phone camera or camcorder, call us on site in the Marshall Islands via satellite phone. That number is: 011-881-651-463- 951. Please pass this message on to any other radio groups, forums, or interested friends. Schedule: December 15, and 16, 2016 6210 Kilocycles: 12:30 pm – 12:32 pm – 12:34 pm (All times EST) +5 for GMT 3105 Kilocycles: 12:37 pm – 12:39 pm – 12:41 pm 6210 Kilocycles: 1:00 pm – 1:02 pm – 1:04 pm 3105 Kilocycles: 1:07 pm – 1:09 pm – 1:11 pm Les Kinney lgkinney@yahoo.com “

Well, we (as K3XS and NG3P -- that's Gwen --) have a decent long wire antenna up maybe 30-40 feet or so run to an IC-746PRO, so we'll try to remember to give a listen.

Havent seen a QSL card in a few months. Best get my old faithful typewriter out and make a reply.

Had the makings of a nice QRP = QRP contact and the band let us down. Only one exchange.

Jack with 4w on a KX1 and I was running 1w on the DXSR8T. Fun mode (A1) naturally!
