Hey all,

I actually really want to join the call, because I have a GSoC idea, but I have a conflict with teaching assistant duties during that time.

So I thought I'd briefly share, and if it does become of interest then maybe someone can get ahold of me and I could try to mentor or something.  I thought it might be cool to show that GNU Radio and the USRPP can be more than just about wireless technology, pushing forward on a hot topic recently: PowerLine networking.

I've been trying to dig up details of PowerLine implementations, but I think they are typically very "wireless PHY" oriented.  I think they are in general OFDM based with Turbo Convolutional Codes.  I think that GNU Radio already provides a lot of the blocks that would be necessary to build the PHY. I am not sure of what the necessary frontend might be for this, but maybe by the summer if Matt and GNU Radio folks are truly interested, a prototype could be made.

Some info i found on PowerLine details:

This is just a reminder about today's Developers' Call. Due to other conflicts, the time has been changed from the normal time to 1600 EST or 2100 UTC.


We'll probably want to spend a significant amount of time on discussing the projects we want to put forward for the GSoC, so please join us if you are interested in participating.
