The Linux.conf.au team are excited to announce the Open Radio Miniconf will be part of Linux.conf.au 2015 in Auckland, New Zealand this coming January.
Participants of the Miniconf will learn about Software Defined Radio, a little about RF and licensing, data encoding and open source radio software. then build, test and debug their very own Software Defined Radio using a low cost kit. The kit will cover reception of HF spectrum and allow transmission over short range.
The Miniconf will held on Monday the 12th of January and run by Kim Hawtin with assistance from Mark Jessop and David Rowe. All three are veterans of Linux.conf.au, they have many years of experience with Linux and Amateur Radio.
Miniconfs are one day miniature conferences, within the main LCA2015 conference, which are targeted towards specific communities of interest and offer delegates an opportunity to network with other enthusiasts while immersing themselves in a specific topic or project.
LCA2015 miniconfs will be run on Monday 12th and Tuesday 13th of January 2015. Each miniconf's schedule is organised by the miniconf's organiser and will be published ahead of time, listing speakers and sessions for the day.
