It's annoying to keep radio on just listening for your callsign. That was the original purpose. Then I also noted there is no desktop repeater listing application that works with a map and offline. I built that as well and made a repeater listing that lets you favorite and get notified if anything changes - if your favorite repeater goes down, and someone comments "go to repeater X/Y/Z instead" for example.
What it does
HearHam.com has a notifier I made for listening for callsign called on the radio, also a repeater listing that lets you see repeaters on map, and be notified of repeater changes in any emergency.
How I built it
Laravel web service. The hearham uploader is in Python,GTK+ and available for experimenting and improvement on Github.
Challenges I ran into
Clearly distinguishing speech call signs doesn't yet work great.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Working Laravel. Working integrations.
What I learned
Laravel Openstreetmap library
What's next for Hearham.Live speech recognizer and repeater listing
More repeaters / more updates!?
