Stanford Radio Club Meeting, Technical Program on Software Radio

Stanford Amateur Radio Club
Meeting: Tuesday, Nov. 9, 7:30 PM, Packard 202
Technical program: GNU Software Radio, status and demonstration
New members welcome

Abstract --

GNU Radio is an open source software radio framework which allows for
experimentation, rapid prototyping and even deployment of complex
Software Radio systems on generic microprocessors.  By performing most
or all processing in software, Software Radio allows for extremely
versatile radio systems and makes multi-standard systems possible.

The Universal Software Radio Peripheral (USRP) is a hardware component
which allows for the physical realization of complex wideband software
radios using commodity PCs.  It allows for up to 4 antennas, enabling
MIMO and Smart Antenna systems.  The hardware design is completely open
and free.  The physical hardware will be available in December.

Matt Ettus, GNU Radio team member and USRP creator, will be discussing
these technologies as well as demonstrating the USRP and GNU Radio in
action.  His Mountain View, CA, consulting practice Ettus Research
serves clients in Wireless Communications, DSP, and Software Radio
design.  He has designed Bluetooth chips, GPS systems, and
microprocessors.  Matt holds degrees from Washington University and
Carnegie-Mellon, and is a longtime amateur radio operator (N2MJI).

The Stanford Amateur Radio Club http://www-w6yx.stanford.edu/w6yx/
offers unique opportunities for students to gain hands-on experience
with radio/wireless equipment, antennas and systems.

We charge no dues for students and offer training classes for licensing.
Faculty, staff and alumni are also welcome as members. We meet the
second Tuesday of each month at 7:30 PM in Packard 202.

In addition to the technical program, tonight's meeting will include
election of student officers and review of club projects and operations.

Faculty Advisor, Stanford Amateur Radio Club
