That’s awesome. I was always on the outskirts of ham radio. I definitely have the personality type for it My lineage is: Intellivison, Tandy Color Computer 2, CB Radio, 300 baud modem (1989) and Tandy 1000 TL, online to PC-Link (later AOL) and local BBS’, 1990 internet (usenet, email, irc, BITNET, Gopher, www, etc)
I picked up a ham radio once, cheapest I could get used. Got it set up (the antenna was awful strands of wire stream about semi-mathematically. well, I worried most about grounding), and I was able to listen in to other people. I transmitted a couple of times illegals – maybe three tests clicks… but I was always so nervous about illegally transmitting I didn’t do more than that.
Now you’ve inspired me to see if I could track down a “teach yourself Braille” thing I wrote for an OZ-770 (Sharp Wizard organizer) I wrote long ago. The site that hosted user apps is long gone but *maybe* internet archive has a copy…
