I have added a page for my experimentation with the
HDSDR (High Definition Software Defined Radio) application.

http://www.rocode.com/hdsdr/

I use an EZCap DVB-T USB dongle to connect my Windows 7 PC to my rooftop TV antenna.

For more details about using HDSDR with the EZCap dongle.

I have created 2 new screencasts about the VetBasic application I developed for Community Veterinary Services.

The two screencasts may be viewed via my VetBasic page
http://rocode.com/vetbasic/

Alternatively they may be individually viewed as
http://rocode.com/vetbasic/VetBasicConsultation.html
for the Consultation Screencast and
http://rocode.com/vetbasic/VetBasicAdmission.html
for the Admission Screencast.

I have purchased Uniden UBC355XLT Bearcat Scanner from ebay.
http://www.uniden.com.au/australia/p_ubc355xlt_index.asp

I have installed the window mounted antenna and tuned the scanner to the local 2m and 70cm Amateur Radio repeaters.

I am also able to listen to the local 2m Amateur Television Liaison frequency.

Tech Talk Radio's website of the week was
http://tunlr.net/
Past websites may be found via
http://techtalkradio.com.au/website-of-the-week.php

I have changed the DNS settings on my ASRock ION 3D system to point at tunlr.net
I am now able to watch USA network content intended for domestic consumption.

The tunlr FAQ details the services supported via the DNS redirector.

As I am running Ubuntu 64bit, I also needed to update my copy of Flash inside firefox.
I found this excellent addon to assist with updating my flash support.
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/flash-aid/
This addon worked where many other suggestions failed to install an operational flash player.

I heard about the Radio & Electronics School
http://res.net.au/
on Tech Talk Radio as "Website of the week" from May 21 2012.
http://techtalkradio.com.au/website-of-the-week.php

I contacted Ron VK2DQ and subsequently signed up for the Standard course for $30.

The course runs for 4-6 weeks with about one hour per day of training.

I have received my multimedia DVD in the post and will update my blog with my progress.

Details of the Standard License may be found on the WIA website.

Fees for the assessments here in Melbourne are detailed on the Eastern & Mountain District Radio Club website.
