I did some more testing on the KZ80.
I got the first prototypes back of the Arduino LoRa Modem (ALMO); it looks like I wired in RX/TX backwards and I got the socket for the RFM backwards somehow. Wunderbar.
Talked to some folks in the RC2014 IRC channel; all three of us were amateur radio operators.
That's about the long and short of it.
So that was written early in the morning while I was suffering from insomnia; it's basically yesterday's journal entry.
Today, I dug up the first dump of notes I made on the KZ80; I thought it would be interesting to preserve the contents so I could clear it out of my file system.
