You have arrived at the site of Bruce Lane, owner of amateur radio station KC7GR and, formerly, DBA Blue Feather Technologies



I say 'Formerly' only because, since the beginning of 2013, business volume has dropped off to the point where it's no longer viable for me to run Blue Feather as an 'official' business (as in regular hours, merchant credit card account, formal advertising, etc.) As of Apr-22, I've also decided to drop our PO box (the Post Awful was getting greedy with the fees).

HOWEVER -- I'm still here, and I'm still happy to help out if you need support, repair or modifications for 'legacy' radio hardware, mil spec connectors, and general electronic tomfoolery.


Microsoft's (spam) mail service... Blocked at our end.

Due to a seemingly never-ending flood of phishing and other spam from MS's much-hyped '' mail service, and Microsoft's apparent self-delusion that no such trash could possibly come from their servers (and their subsequent refusal to take any countermeasures whatsoever), I've found it necessary to configure our mail system to refuse all traffic from the '' domain. If you're trying to reach me from any address ending in ',' it will bounce.

The only available workaround at this time is to try sending your message from a different web mail service (Gmail works just fine).

The Blue Feather Tech FTP Archive is active...

I forgot to update the notice on this page. Apologies for any confusion. The migration went smooth as glass.

Access to the site is FREE to anyone who asks. However, you need to Email me for the current password.

Once I've given you access, please do NOT spread the login info on any (anti?)social media or any other public forum. You can share it with other techies, whom you trust, as long as you do so PRIVATELY and they agree to the same terms.

Thanks much!
