I read about the Zello software on / _/ / /
xiled's phlog, and was curious to know what \_______/_\___/____/\___/____/_
public channels he was lurking on. I was / \/ \/ / \
struggling to find any active one having / _/ /_ _/
constructive (or even civil haha) /- / _/ /
conversations, I found a few with active \________/\________/\___/____/
users but they either had no one talking, or
were just trolling spam and station announcements. I was just about to shoot
him an email when I found an active trucker CB and it's very neat.
It's a really interesting mechanism. I've seen a similar thing used before
in LINE messenger that's really popular with the Asian population here, It
lets you leave voice messages for each other to carry on a voice conversation
asynchronously, though I'm not sure it has similar group channels. It's also
cool to have a way to go back and listen to messages you didn't catch and I
like being able to tune in to multiple public channels at once.
I never imagined there'd be a crossover between that and the amateur radio
community but hearing it in action it makes a lot of sense.
I like the idea of having music in the background playing over it too, as
xiled suggested, it reminds me of youarelistening.to and soma.fm's Mission
Control. Way into it.
Took a quick look at the API too, wonder what I can do with it.
