@smitty - I have the basic design of my “OHIS Mixer User” laid up in Kicad, since I figured there is enough difference between what I wanted and what a standard “one user multiple radios” would likely be for your station console. I’m thinking I might order the parts and test it on breadboards first, because the board is bigger and little pricier, so I’d like to limit the number of “Re-do’s” if I can, but if you want to stream a hardware review, I’d prob be game 😀
Thanks, @kb6nu !
@bud_t you should add your new blog to the ring that a bunch of us added ours to:
OK friends here is my shiny new #hamradio blog (still very much a work in progress).
This is where you can read my open letter to the #ARRL and their response, along with my thoughts on that.
@smitty - when I was last on the #HamRadioWoekbench we talked a little about my potential desire to make an OHIS ‘user’ device where the ‘user’ end is a mixer. I finally sketched out the inputs and outputs I’d want, and I suspect it is very close to what you’ve talked about for a @electronics HHI Station Console, now that I see it on paper
Well, I received a reply to my open letter to the #ARRL. It was defensive, and said that my call for a position statement on inclusive ham radio was "political" and they would make no such statement.
I need to process and think about it before deciding what to do, but this is disheartening to say the least.
I may just be done with the League altogether.

1:1 with boss this afternoon.
He said my coming out to him as like the third person I did has been a highlight of his management career so far, because it means he’s been successful at creating a psychologically safe work environment.
And I agree.
My birthday is around now, and I’m thinking about the hobbit tradition where the birthday individual gets gifts for everyone else instead of the other way around. If I was sloppy wealthy I’d get you all the biggest fanciest Flex Radio money can buy, but I’m not, so you’ll have to settle for me sending good vibes and love in your direction!
