DAPNET Sucks

Man, I wish DAPNET / HAMPager.de would get their shit together. Over the course of the past few months or so, the DAPNET server becomes completely unreachable for extended periods of time.

Now, I’m not the biggest Kool-Aid drinking fan of DAPNET to begin with, but I have a DAPNET account and use the account for testing and validation purposes; since POCSAG (and the DAPNET service) is a part of my W0CHP-PiStar-Dash software.

WinLink and The ARRL Suck

I’ll keep as concise as possible. One of my local ham clubs has been sucking the teat of the shitty WinLink service and promoting it profusely. I always felt WinLink sucked balls based on principle alone, the proprietary nature of it, and it really being basically a shitty ISP under the guise of a ham radio email service. It’s fucking up the amateur radio airwaves.
