Computer Talk

We will be talking about computers, everything from web design to search engine optimisation, plus disability and computers

This software defined radio (SDR) station is based in Wheathampstead in south-east England (IO91UT) and covers 160, 80, 40 and 20 m. If you live in the UK then this is a really good SDR station to use if you want to test your audio. Basically, just tune into a frequency on your computer and match it on your radio, I normally use 40 m because bank conditions are normally open. if conditions are running between the two stations will be up to hear yourself clearly coming out of your computer speaker.

This is another good SDR (software defined radio) based in Spain that will allow you to monitor your transmissions when the history is running in the right direction

I've been using a website called for a few years now in order to monitor myself on software defined radios around the world. Basically, when the conditions are right you can tune into a frequency on one of these radios which is based abroad and if you're lucky you can actually hear yourself talk. I often use it to monitor my modulation and make sure that I sound good.

If you are a friend of mine on Facebook then due to a divine please note I have had to create a new account. Basically, Facebook suddenly blocks my account accusing me of harbouring malware on my PC. In order to unblock my account, they insisted I download some software. Well, nobody blackmails me and I'm certainly not downloading any software until I know exactly what it is. So, unfortunately, Facebook has got me by the short and curly's and I have no alternative but to create another account.

Have you been greeted with the above message when climbing into Facebook recently?

Well, if you were then you are certainly not alone, it seems that lots of people have experienced exactly the same issue. I certainly don't have any malware or viruses because I run security. Anyway, even if I did, how Facebook would know is anyone's guess.
