About

Hello, my name is Dominic and I maintain this website.
I am a licensed ham radio operator since 2019 and my callsign is OE7DRT.

My QTH is Längenfeld - the locator for that is JN57lb.

I am really really really sorry but I do not have that much time to update the website with new content—I occassionally watch the logfiles and make small changes to keep the website running.

Be prepared for Winter 2021, I guess I have some free time around November and December.

Repeaters around

Those are the repeaters around my home (and my second home). My QTH is around 1180m above sea level (my second home is nearly the same; but 16km to the north).

For now, I only own some handheld radios so I do not reach those repeaters from my terrace. I can sometimes open the first two repeater

About this website

My website is a personal storage of a set of information about many different things — mostly about ham radio and other tech stuff. The main goal of my blog is for my personal usage. That is because some articles may not explain everything — I hope I can reproduce a working setup (for me) with all the steps in these articles.

I could have saved some links in my bookmarks, right? Well, I have. But I do that now for a long time and it sometimes happens, that one or another link becomes unavailable and hosting my own set of information does not result in these situations in any way. As long as I need them.

You can use the information on these pages for yourself. Just keep in mind, that some of them may not be very objective or even accurate. The reverse is true. I fill them with my opinions and experiences; some with solutions — some not.

Also, keep in mind that the information on my websites could go offline anytime.

Other resources

I used to maintain a broader range of topics on my other website dominicreich.com. I changed the backend software and themes here and there, mostly trying to find a better solution as the one I currently have ;-)

For reference, my older website are still accessible on the following URLs:

That is the first site that was published with a static site generator. I used Jekyll at that time. Thanks to Michael Rose and his efforts on his own website I was able to publish a changed version as my own website.

After some time I wanted something slim and less complex to maintain so I gave Hugo a try. The used theme made me switch back to Jekyll again (some styling problems that I weren’t able to fix quickly enough made me actually give Jekyll another try). Besides that I got my radio amateur license at that time that also made me buy a new domain — oe7drt.com was online.

I was using the slim theme PaperCSS. I wasn’t using this long because I was not able to fix the styling on the search page to not disrupt the page on mobile devices.

With the search page problems mentioned above I gave Hydejack a try. I tried this already some time before and bought the Pro version to use with Netlify as a private repository hosted on Github. I missed the slim design of the hugo website and could not resist to give that search another try…

And here we are. I finally got the search bar styling fixed and it does no longer break the layout on smaller screens. I was also able to remove the html-tags within the description so the found entries do look a lot better now.
