Re: The Outer Limits
- Dear fellow hams,
What is all this stuff about a PIC32?
I know it is a microcontroller and I found the website and I know you
can buy it for $32 which is attractive for me.
But what can I do with it in relation with the softrock40 program?
And what is already achieved in relation with that?
One other topic: Please can you arrange a splinter Internet meeting to
discuss which operating system is the best?
I think there are enough fora where everyone can drop his knowledge
about this subject.
Have fun, Henk, PA0KEP.

every order. According to the State of Oklahoma tax website, the
sales tax for my zip code is 5.4%. They insist on charging me 9%
which is for town in another county. I think that they use the
highest tax in each 5 digit zip code. If it is less, they pocket the
If I don't get the difference back, I lose money.
Maybe, I should suggest that I am contacting the state and see if
their toon changes.
