OpenRadio Miniconf


In the evolution of the OpenRadio Miniconf, we are changing gears and zooming out a little.

At LCA2016 we would like to persue a three pronged approach to exploring the world of radio;

Firstly, we would like to make more OpenRadio SDR and other kits available so folks can build them in the Hacker Lounge through out the conference.

Secondly, we would like to have a series of lightning talks to get feedback from the community on current topics.

Thirdly, we would like to show the diversity of radio at a mini field day, in the style of amateur radio portable field days.
