    Ted’s Motorola Edge 30 Ultra Review - with Samsung’s ISOCELL HP1 1/1.22” (14mm) 200MP sensor

    ------------------

    Matt Jones on Baofeng UV-5R

    …a cheap Chinese 2m/70cms FM transceiver. It's not a particularly good one, actually it's pretty poor in the grand scale of Radios, but it's not absolute garbage, and it does work as it's designed to. The thing that makes it iconic is the price. Where a Radio Amateur might have paid £300-£1000 for an equivalent product from a reputable manufacturer (Icon, Yeasu, Kenwood etc), I paid around £7 for this one from China (or £26 in the UK)! Which is astonishing when you consider this includes the Radio, Antenna, a Removable Li-ion Battery, two headsets, case, cradle dock and a charger.

    The reason these are popular with a lot of folks is that they can be easily programmed to use the Licence Free PMR446 frequencies, (although technically it's not legal to do so) so they are popular with off-roaders, paintballers, security companies etc.

    It’s a hell of alot of tech of £7 - and even works as a rechargeable torch!

    …therein followed a long thread in our MeWe Group as listeners compared their memories and various pieces of Ham Radio kit!

    No Tech Addicts for 3 weeks over Christmas and NY? A terrible end to 2022. On a serious note, the podcast remains (unsurprisingly) top class. Looking forward to what tech (and the podcast) has in store in 2023.

    Juliet Purcell - Listening to the 20th November Tech Addicts podcast episode, I think the organ that you mention that you have to pedal to get the air into the bellows to enable you to play is called a Harmonium. They used to be routinely found in Welsh chapels.

    I had a Palm III at work and my boss a Palm V. Early 2000s that must have been. I remember the hotsync debacle. We used Novell Groupwise at that time and there was a software called intellisync that worked quite well with it. But when it failed it was horrible.
