Re: HBLINK HBMONITOR
Cort N0MJS <n0mjs@...>
Hey all – the code for HBMonitor is not great. I use GitHub to sync it between my own computers. I am not a programmer; I program because I need to create a tool for the job. HBMonitor is a tool, even if a very crude one and as such is posted, but not advertised. The statement of unsupported work is just that, unsupported. I am not “unwilling,” but I have learned that with HBlink and DMRlink being my priorities, I have to let something go. They are the more important work and I don’t have time to make HBmonitor good, and advance them too. HBmonitor is fragile, but as it is, it does the job I need it to do. Whether it can do the job you need it to do is likely questionable. Feel free to work the code and pilot a new solution.
The spirit of ham radio, the way I operate, is to be on the lookout for tools and innovation and to create when necessary. I make tools and I take tools, but when I take tools from others the responsibility for implementing them becomes mine alone because I am using that tool for a specific reason, in a specific environment. Ham radio is a community that I contribute to as I have time and ideas, it is not my job. By all means my code is available and if there is a way to improve it, therein lies the real spirit of ham radio – people looking out for others and making changes and additions and upgrades as fits their own need and ability.
