Robotic Radio and CW Robot

Rob Frohne, KL7NA on a building block for Robotic radio

Nice dig by Rob on the age profile of his audience :-)

Using Robotics (Lego robots) to reach kids and encourage Ham Radio.

Robotic Radio - Doing things automatically that we as operators used to do.

  • SteppIR's antennas for example
  • Automatic antenna tuners
  • Rotators
  • pskreporter.info
  • WebSDR - SDR receivers online,  websdr.org

Rob gave a little intro to Open Source software for radio,  FLDIGI, DTTSP, SDR-Shell, etc.

 

CW Robot is an opensource version of CWSkimmer written by Rob's Students and is available at:
