I was just looking at this, intending on posting this. I guess great minds think alike...

Matlab and Simulink are very useful tools. While you are encouraged to use the tools that are provided, they didn't seem to be mandatory.

I have a bigger concern that the contest entry materials become the property of the SDR Forum. If I were a student looking for something to commercialize, that might be a deal breaker right there.

I also think, looking at the sample problems, that they will be lucky to get any entrants at all.

especially considering the timeframe they are looking for.
