KIM Uno - 6502 emulated on Arduino

Submitted by gerry on Thu, 12/04/2014 - 13:25

When I was young, about 11, I was lucky enough to be bought a Commodore 64, the computer that introduced a generation to computers, and likely launched thousands of careers in computing, mine included. It wasn't long before I started to feel constrained by the very basic version of BASIC that it ran... 2 character variable names, no labels, no loops apart from FOR, no allowances to structured programming whatsoever.

Mobile APRS with Icom IC7100 and mobilinkd

I used to have a bunch of radios in my car; an IC7000 for HF, a Kenwood TM D710 for APRS/VHF/UHF and a Cleartone CM7 ex-PMR for 4m AM/FM. They were installed relatively stealthily, but when I came across the successor to the IC7000, the IC7100, I saw how I could aggregate all of this into a single radio.
So... long story short, I sold all the radios that were in the car and bought the IC7100

Chirp Files for Baofeng B5 and Wouxun UVD1P (4m version)

I have created image files for CHIRP for both the Baofeng B5, VHF/UHF dual band HT, and the Wouxun UVD1P 4m/2m dual Band HT with the Irish repeater&internet gateway frequencies and where applicable, access tones. They also contain other frequencies that can be interesting to listen to, such as Marine VHF and PMR446.

Worst. Spam. Ever.

I just got one of those 'we can SEO you to riches and fame' emails. Normally, I just ignore them, flag as spam so gmail recognises them in the future, and go about my day. This time, however, the brazen tone and apparently international presence of IMPACTFULSEO.COM caught my attention.
