The HamLinks Ham Radio Toolbar has received a bit of unexpected publicity lately. Two hams (within a day or two of one another) posted recommendations for the HamLinks toolbar in two substantial user forums. Within each group almost the same conversation erupted… there were many downloads/installations, followed by many other comments along the lines of “hey, this is cool”. Then, in each group, someone objected with “there must be privacy issues”. Those threads have all died down now and everyone seems to be happy.
I have made several updates to the HamLinks Ham Radio Toolbar in response to this…
- There is now direct access to the great AmateurLogic.TV ham radio TV show. If you haven’t seen this yet, it’s a fun look at ham radio and techy topics (WiFi hacking, etc.).
- In the HamLinks forum, a request was made to allow users to add their own RSS feeds. I did a bit of coding to allow for that. If you have a Conduit toolbar and want to add a blog or RSS feed, now end users can do it with my form.
The HamLinks Ham Radio Toolbar continues to grow in popularity… over 2400 installations in just 4 months!
