Sometimes taking a step back is the only way to move forwards.

Frustrating! Wanted to use a PIC as a frequency counter, but can't get the blessed thing to work. Rebuilt everything in a minimal config on a breadboard. Still no Joy.

Time to take a step back.

[Re]introducing, a Mastodon instance for anyone with an interest in radio in all its forms, anywhere in the world.

Whether you're involved in community or college radio, LPFM, amateur radio, short wave listening or DXing, or whether you're just a lover of radio, you're welcome at

A few months or maybe a year back (please don't quiz me on this, my brain is incapable of processing the passage of time with any degree of accuracy), there was a big spreadsheet circulating around filled with queer musicians spanning just about every conceivable genre.

Thank you in advance! <3
