Mystery team cage match scheduled for tonight.

My bad. Could have sworn I updated the calendar -- usual routine is to do that right after updating the roster. Strange month in a very strange year. Such is life. Been doing this gig too long.

The announcement had been corrected and will be out later today but for those of you who are curious the real team is as follows:

Net Control - KD9LF
North Check-Ins - N6BRV
South Check-Ins - KJ6HOV

Hi All

 

Fyi. Not sure if you know this or it is useful to you but here goes:

 

I was scanning my wifi network tonight and found a bunch of devices on it with MAC addresses I didn’t recognize. They used my first name  and in some cases a device name that I had entered. I was concerned. After some investigation I found out the ios 14 introduced MAC address randomization. I is supposed to make you apple devices more difficult to track across wifi networks. If you go to SETTING, WI-FI and click on the name of the network you are connected to, you can see if you are using randomization if the Private Address is selected. Below it is the current MAC address  the device is using.

 

The one issue I have with it right now that it clutters up the network map my Linksys router generates. Not sure if I will keep it on when on my home network. Any ideas or suggestions?
