Yeah I had heard that's basically most of the rest of the world... Very unfortunate... It would be fine if it was just darwinism (if they were only endangering themselves) but they are endangering everyone unfortunately...
Well either way try to be safe. And maybe we can take advantage of the time to see about getting some fun project work done since we can't really do much else (outside of work hours).
But yeah we're kind of derailing the topic for this doom and gloom stuff, so I'll leave it at that and let you know if I make any progress with the crypto on the firmware/dfu tools. And hope you can get your hands on a RT3S.
I'll see if I can hop on the TG you mentioned as well for OpenGD77, I try to leave my radio on monitoring my primary talk groups through the day. I'll have to add it to my codeplug so I can quickly monitor it. Might talk to you on the air.
(if you do hear me on the air, don't be surprised, I did mention in my welcome message, but I'm Canadian, immigrated to NZ. So I don't have a kiwi accent lol, I'm told I have a quite distinct Canadian accent).
