Saying good bye (buy) to Apple OS X after a decade.

No more iPhone if I can find Intel Android tablet device with 4G/LTE to be hot spot then I may keep iPad and iPods with iPhone as Wifi.

CQ , CQ KB1ELE

Starting with KB1ELE radios and KB1OIQ distribution.


The Samsung Tab 2 with the Nuvision TM700A520L Quad core Atom running Kit Kat (for now) for $100 from Staples is all I really wanted when I drank the 2008 Touch iPod Kool Aid !

7 years of bad luck and I didn’t even get to break the mirror.
Or the seven year itch ?
7 inch screen is larger than most phones for us older folks with diminishing eye sight.
And it takes pictures and saves on removable expandable memory.
Plug it into another device and copy or print pictures.
Scribble the login instead of fat figure or finger print recognition.
And email reading while on the go with bigger screen.
Thanks Windows 10 for making it all possible with same Intel tablet running Android instead.

It connects to Wifi, YouTube, Netflix and activates on TV without a proprietary Apple TV set top box which stopped support for YouTube after 3 years.
Just a Chrome Cast ($35) or Smart TV like Viera Panasonic.
Then Android Studio for free to develop my own projects without royalties and renewing $100 developers license to be in a store / market.

Need I go on ?

 Ok, now for the fun part !

I start with KB1OIQ ubuntu for Ham Radio on the left !
At the same time is ubuntu Studio on the same MacBook with the Yamaha AG03  !

 UV-5R series two-way radio are the newest styles by BAO FENG

It is really a cost-effective LCD dual band two-way radio, if you like it, why are you hesitating?

I have added a Baofeng UV-5R to my shack so as to use this distribution
and share the information with other hams and non-hams.

This will improve multimedia for eventual Wifi communications in an emergency or in a contest like ARRL Field Day !

100 years in 2012 is Ham Radio !

Now again in 2016 is KB1ELE from the FCC.

But your are also involved with an FCC license.

The Declaration of Internet Freedom

Internet freedom isn’t a left or right issue — it should matter to everyone who cares about the health and future of democracy.

The Open Internet rules went into effect on June 12, 2015. They are ensuring consumers and businesses have access to a fast, fair, and open Internet.

The Film Killswitch was released on October 23, 2015 so I added the link here.

Anyway, 2016 is starting to look like a really exciting time.

Stay tuned or
