Progress on my radiology equipment tracker has been coming along pretty nicely. After adding a bunch of new much wanted features, development on it has slowed down a bit while I figure out what else I want to add, and learn more to fix/refine what I’ve already done.
In the coding world, everybody says the best way to learn something is to work on projects that you’re interested in. In that spirit, I started working on a web based logging program using Laravel and PHP.
The logger is still in the very early stages. I’m still working out the database schema, so there’s not really any working code yet.
For lack of creativity, I’m calling it AB4UGLogger for now. Feel free to following along, contribute, fork or make suggestions.
Today is my fourth year of being a licensed amateur radio guy. It’s been a lot of fun so far even though I haven’t been on the radio a whole lot recently.
Now going into my fifth year, we’re about to move into a new house with a few additions geared toward amateur radio. Looking forward to being able to get back on the air, and hopefully spend some more time playing radio. I have a lot of radio and electronics related projects to work on. It will take some time to get the shack and workbench set up and organized, but it will be nice to have a space to work in again.
The only thing missing is a convenient way to get an antenna a good height into the air. The trees next to the old house were a great place to hide an antenna in, but no such features at the new house. I’ll have to work on something else to get the antenna(s) up in the air.
