I think that you'll find many people who cross multiple fields of expertise on 
this list -- I think that's part of the fun of SDR and GNU Radio to many of us. 
 Your point that SDR encompasses many disciplines is valid, and certainly leads 
to a steep learning curve for some people.  I have, in general, enjoyed the 
learning associated with SDR, GNU Radio & GRC, but I also believe it is an 
impediment for others. - MLD
