I got to drive an elevator in independent service mode today. 🛗 :blobcatstop:

Turns out USB over Ethernet is a thing, and it might just be what I need to wire my SDR antenna outside.

Antenna -coax-> Amplifier -coax-> SDR -usb-> USBoE modulator -ethernet-> EoP modulator -mains-> EoP demodulator -ethernet-> USBoE demodulator -usb-> computer

Talk about a simple setup!

Bought a cheapo SDR, a 15m coax cable, and already managed to make it work with my Sony AM antenna amplifier. Oh boy, can’t wait until I move to my new place next week, hoping the high floor will mean better reception.

“Babbage understood that the existence of an automatic computer would kindle interest in the field now known as algorithmic efficiency, writing in his Passages from the Life of a Philosopher, ‘As soon as an Analytical Engine exists, it will necessarily guide the future course of the science. Whenever any result is sought by its aid, the question will then arise—By what course of calculation can these results be arrived at by the machine in the shortest time?’”

The man was indeed a century ahead of his time
