About Me

I am Ian Jaeger, one of the 'starving hackers' at DMS. I'm currently trying to get a startup going with a water decontamination / desalination process as well as a contract pilot for a local aircraft dealership.

My Projects

End Grain Cutting Board

This started as something else, but I ended up making it into an end grain cutting board for a family member. The board is made of Purple Heart and Hard Maple and is coated with mineral oil. It's nice!

APRS Cable

While I'm out flying, I'm not supposed to use a cell phone to get and receive messages (the FCC doesn't approve) and half the time, my phone doesn't have signal anyway. But I can use APRS to both send my location and a short message. In theory, I should be able to receive messages as well. With that in mind, I'm putting together a cable to link my Baofeng UV5R and iphone that runs an app called Pocket Packet.
The project itself is based on the one here: BaofengUV5R-TRRS

As I get it done, I'll post more.

Jeep Stuff

I'm not going to post any of this here... but I do try to keep my personal page updated here:
