My name is Pontus Falk and I live in Stockholm, Sweden. Since 1986 I am a licensed Amateur Radio operator. My callsign is SM0RUX.
On this website I write about things I find important.
I hope you will find some usefull information here!
AX.25 is a data link layer protocol derived from the X.25 protocol suite and designed for use by amateur radio operators. It is used extensively on amateur packet radio networks.
In the late 80's, when I got my Amateur Radio license, I quickly became very active on what was known as Packet Radio. Later on I became active using TCP/IP via Amateur Radio frequencies. For about 10 years from 2001, I was responsible for the Swedish branch of amprnet.
Over the years I have been more and more concerned about what other know about us. I have no major problems that NSA, GCHQ, BND, DGSE and FRA follows my online activities.
However, have you spend a minute thinking about how much information about us are stored - and used - by companies like Facebook, Google, Yahoo and Amazon?
Amateur Radio is defined by ITU, a UN organization.
Today I am mainly active on Digital Voice modes like D-STAR and DMR. I also like taking my radio gear outdoor working the HF bands portable.
