Just a note: This scanner supports "Fire Tone Out" functionality, which enables it to remain silent until it detects a transmission from one or more fire stations that are geographically local to your neighborhood. This is a critical feature in fire country that all scanners should have - but many don't.

Re: Starlink Satellite Internet Beta Testing Results #QST #satellites

Hi Alan,

Looks pretty clean, at least for those ports.  Good start!

Looking back to the router settings, it's really odd that they are using a 10 bit subnet mask.  That's a huge subnet!  I'm guessing that the double NAT is so that one Starlink user can't peek into other users' networks.  If the second NAT is your own Dlink router, connecting directly to its WAN connection might be, um, "interesting"...  Wireshark, anyone?

One of the products I worked on years ago divided the wireless client world into /30 IP subnets and then blocked routing between them for this reason.  Everyone was in their own little world, blissfully unaware of the networking chaos around them.

RDF simulator files

Phil - KM6NFS
 

Hi All, and especially the RDF group,

I've uploaded some GNU Radio Companion files to the "RDF Project Files / GRC Simulator" folder. This is part of the Raspberry Pi + RTLSDR based radio direction finder I'm working on. If you download and run it, you'll see a slider on the top which lets you adjust the phase between the received signal and the reference signal. At the bottom is a gauge showing the calculated bearing. The embedded python block that does the bearing calculation is titled "Phase Measurement". Its file is named epy_block_0_0.py. It's still kind of buggy, and there's a lot more to do. Any comments, questions, or ideas are welcome.

73,
Phil KM6NFS

That's no good.  I have the same rig in my vehicle.  I hope it isn't too much trouble/expense to fix it.

Hi Alan,

You might try running some of the network port scanning tools at Gibson Research's "Shields Up!" page:

https://www.grc.com/default.htm

I used to work with Steve, and his engineering is top notch.  These tools will show you how your network looks, from the Internet side on in.  You want "Stealth".
