[AMRadio] OT SDR

Hi Bob,

Had one of those four legged drone UFO's hovering over the house two weeks 
ago, loaded the 12 gage and dispatched it.  Going to send the body to area 
51 for analysis.  Guess the Martians beat NASA to it.  Turns out a real 
estate gal came looking for the carcass.  Told her to check with Uncle 
Sam --- she would need a security clearance to retrieve her UFO friends 
remains from the Area 51 guys.

Working on an anti-UFO missile using baseball mitt radar technology. 
Probably be able to knock those buggers of at 1/2 mile.  Just love that new 
techno stuff.  Last time I worked on guidance systems we used rubber bands 
and an escapement system --- sorta like texting.

A friend who is an RC enthusiast started snaring those UFO things using a 
high performance stealth model airplane by swooping down and dropping a 
small fishing net on it.  Folks started to complain that somehow due to 
global warming and weather changes, hair nets have started to drop out of 
the ionosphere.

You have a good time with that stuff.

Kindest regards Jim K9AXN

Can I fix it?  Yes!  Why?  I've taken the time to get into the entire
realm of Surface Mount Technology!

I've been building circuits with them.  I've been repairing them.

The RaspberryPI DOES have a schematic out there.  Didn't cost a single cent!

A Nay sayer in this technology is one that either doesn't want to learn,
or can't learn from my experience.

It is no different than the current arena of Drones or UAVs if you
wish.  I have one of them also.  The control system runs at 5.8GHz.  The
Camera feed back to the controller that provides FPV, (First Person
View), runs at 2.5GHz.  It looks the same inside as a Kenwood TS-2000.

We have been building better antennas for the 5.8GHz.

I can repair and troubleshoot it also.  Guess I'm not staying stuck in
old tired equipment.

I'll keep learning and moving with the new.  The next step is mounting a
qrp rig under the UAV and making contacts, CW or AM from up to 400 feet
above ground.

Then tell me how unworkable this is.
