A few titbits whilst I think of them...

RSGB HF Convention
My presentation, "SDR with knobs on!" is provisionally scheduled for Saturday 8th October at 11:45 in Lecture Room 5. Of course that might change, but that's the plan for now. See you there?

I'm particularly pleased to discover that the CEO of Flex Radio will also be presenting at the convention. I'm looking forward to hearing what he has to say!

Mk1 information
You'll note that I have started a new page with some details about the Mk1 controller. There's not much there just yet but I plan that this will develop over time, with the intention that it should contain helphul information for anyone who would like to build their own controller.

Nothing there just yet but I will eventually put the controller code up there for you all to take a look at. Please try not to be too disparaging about my C programming skills:)

Is there anyone there?
Not getting much in the way of engagement from you Blog followers! Perhaps you've all gone away and I'm talking to myself. It would be nice to know if anyone is still QRV.


  1. Hi John
    I have to put my hands up and say I am guilty of being one of I suspect the many silent avid readers. Or in my case still sat on the fence as to whether to go full SDR.
    Please keep up the good work


  2. Hi Frank, thanks for the comments. I think the question of full SDR or not is quite topical right now - there's no doubting the basic performance and flexibility that SDR brings but ergonomically and control-wise there is, perhaps, still a bit of a way to go. That's really what this project is all about, I guess.
