Just a reminder that if you are planning on heading along to the fifth OSHUG
meeting tomorrow to register if you haven't already:





Open Source Hardware User Group

Event #5

Radio (HPSDR)

Thursday, October 21, 2010 from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM (GMT)
London, United Kingdom

HPSDR is an open source (GNU type) hardware and software project intended as
the "next generation" software-defined radio for radio amateurs and
shortwave listeners. It is being developed by a group of software-defined
radio enthusiasts around the world, and in a modular hardware fashion to
help promote experimentation by both hardware and software developers.

John Melton has held an amateur radio license since 1984 when he was first
licensed as N6LYT while living and working in California, and he was
assigned the UK callsign of G0ORX on moving back to the UK. He became
interested in developing open source software in 1990 with the launch of
AMSAT Oscar 16, an amateur radio satellite with a store and forward
messaging payload. He developed an open source software package to
communicate with the satellite that ran on Linux (pre 1.0) and subsequently
wrote an open source fully automated satellite ground station software
package in Java. John has been a software engineer since 1970 when he was
employed by Burroughs Corporation, and for the last 14 years he has worked
for Sun Microsystems who were acquired by Oracle this year.
