so, does anyone have weird/autistic hobbies? I like collecting insects, arachnids, small animals and etc putting them in jars and observing them. I don't just chuck them in either, I make sure they have a decent home so I always insert grass/leaves/sand/whatever else they like. I used to have a miniature zoo at home but medical university makes it hard for me to keep a large collection unfortunately. I've been doing this since I was 4 years old, at least thats the earliest time I can remember doing this kind of thing.

I am a licensed amateur radio operator since a few years back. probably the quintessential autistic hobby. fits well if you're into electronics and computers.

I've been looking into internet over VHF and emergency communications lately.

Look into the gemini protocol, it's light weight and simple to set up, and can be used like a minimalist web, it should be usable at the low data rates you could get over armature VHF

gemini is on the application layer. I'm looking at the lower layers. might also give NPR (New Packet Radio) a go. there's been work in the freedv.org project on software modems and data modes that looks quite promising

It's good to hear of more lefty hams. Nothing better than building a real P2P network that doesn't rely on big corporations to transport your data.

Have you looked into scada modems? Some of them can do 2m/70cm at >1Mbps, like this one. I'm guessing there are some proprietary chips in there though.

I'd like to get TARPN set up one day (not to be confused with TAPR). It's cheap enough with a bunch of Baofengs.

I have not, but those modems look pretty swanky

I think APRS already fills this niche well enough

Well, I'm not sure if this counts, but I'm a Redditor

I make liqueurs from stuff I pick up on my hikes. Tbh it's a way to hide my alcoholism behind a hobby.

Is world building considered autistic? I’ve been interested in it for a while but I only read on them and make random maps. Since I have nowhere near the artistic capacity to actually draw.

 No.15837

>>15836
I consider it artistic.

I like to retranslate songs and some dialogue from a children's cartoon. That's my weird hobby.
When I move on to another series or movie I'l probably do the same.
