FT3D Bluetooth Mic for under £20?

The CCARC YSF Reflector has been running on the excellent G4KLX YSFReflector. However it hasn’t been been without problems for me. The reflector has a lot of issues going offline intermittent, and crashing when stations disconnect. I have been looking at pYSFReflector a python3 alternative and this morning decided to give it a go! https://github.com/iu5jae/pYSFReflector …. Read More
