I’ve been on an enforced go-slow recently and now that I’m more mobile I started looking for things to do. Several of my transceivers have the ability to add custom ‘bootup’ screens. So I thought how hard could it be?
Like most things, it is easy once you know how. K9WX figured it out already in short, use a 120×48 pixel, 1 bit bitmap, 120×48 created in Microsoft Paint.
The result isn’t very imaginative, but I get a chuckle out of it and that’s all that matters.
As the AGM was cancelled, I kicked the can down the road a bit, but finally last Monday evening I presented the slides to my local club (SEARG). Given it was originally supposed to be a presentation to a national audience, the slides are now available from here.
