Re: Solder header onto Joggler PATA port

Some great stuff there Pete !

Any chance you could post some photos of what you've soldered onto the PATA port and from a few different angles ? I'm very interested to see what you've done.

Thanks

Re: Ham radio Joggler

If you bombard many types of electronic devices with Electro Magnetic Radiation (EMR) - radio waves - there will be weird stuff that happens. This has been made into a military weapon to take out the enemies systems. It may have emanated from the "Star Wars" programme in the Ronald Raygun years. Com...

Solder header onto Joggler PATA port

The wiki article : https://www.jogglerwiki.com/wiki/Adding_a_PATA_port explains a great deal. But just to experiment, I thought, what if I just solder a header onto the PATA pads, then I can connect whatever to it. Admittedly there may be issues closing the joggler back up. I'm thinking I can find a...

New games for CBM64 !

If someone told me that games are still being developed for micros that are nearly 40 years old, I would have initially thought they were pulling my leg. Well I stumbled across this new game for the CBM64 the other day and it looks pretty damned good : https://galencia.itch.io/galencia https://www.c...

Re: Ham radio Joggler

Given the Joggler's limited resources plus using USB for mass storage, I'd be inclined to use Ubuntu base and see if console applications are enough. In fact a few years ago this is exactly what I did with receiving ADS-B https://www.rtl-sdr.com/adsb-aircraft-radar-with-rtl-sdr/ I used BuZz's ubuntu...

Re: CB RTTY / PSK for Joggler .

Hi Hawsey - good to hear from you. Good to hear too that there is still some CBers active. Is this is in Northumberland ? I wonder if they use CB lingo, like the glory days of 70's and early 80's CB ? My two passions in radio are data modes and low power portable operation. Back in the mid 80s I'd w...

Re: CB RTTY / PSK for Joggler .

Hi Hawsey, Back in the late 70s and 80s I did quite a bit with CBs, including sending/receiving RTTY and SSTV on what was/still is the CB27/81 FM band. Wasn't legal and it created massive disruption amongst the local CB population. Conversations for the next few days regularly included the arrival o...

Thanks for the explanation BuzZ, of why my joggler flies. I havent noticed any overheating issues and I'm using a joggler with a backstand. I usually have the opposite problem of the joggler being too cold and having a "smoke screen" as it was once described. I wanted to try the infinity plug in wit...

Re: Ubuntu / Xubuntu for the O2 Joggler.

It should be possible without emgd - audio may be a problem too. Emgd could probably work against a newer kernel, but the binary blob part still needs an ancient xorg, so wouldn't be worth including it if going for up to date stuff. I don't have a lot of free time currently though due to other proj...

Hi BuZz I really appreciate all the great work and support you've given to the Joggler community for several years now.

Re: Touchscreen event trouble

I don't use the joggler touchscreen at all, but have played a bit. I don't think the Jogglers touch screen is that great, and I get miffed at putting grease marks all over the screen. I use the keyboard most of the time. Anyway, some of these may shed some light : Not ubuntu, but talks about calibra...
