Symbiotic HAMradio hobby

Although the biologic meaning of symbiotic strictly refers to "living together", regardless of the nature of the relationship, in casual speech the word typically implies a beneficial relationship. 

 When analyzing the problem I have connecting the laptop to my phone for a shared internet connection I was thinking of this. When you use digimode these days you need a time keeping device, a symbiotic device you can say. Most weak signal modes now have time slots which you need to be in within a few seconds otherwise there is nothing decoded. I described a GPS time keeping device earlier this year. However it is reliable only in the field as, at least my device, is not working well inside a building. That's why I use my phone. And what is in all these devices? Right, a radio transmitter, transceiver or receiver. I finally solved my laptop to phone connection with a bleutooth connection via a PAN (Personal Area Network). Strange enough my laptop would not connect to my phone via WiFi although I see it in my list it keeps trying to ask for network configuration. With PAN via bluetooth it was all solved and at least I can keep the time steady on my ancient XP laptop.

  1. Mooi opgelost Bas, met die PAN via BT. Ik kende het niet maar het geeft wel weer nieuwe perspectieven.
