Hi all,

GSoC season is about to start again.  I had some ideas about a joint
project between GNU Radio and Debian.

Basically, it would involve one or more students working to combine the
GNU Radio bootable Ubuntu DVD[1] and the Debian Ham Live DVD[2] to
create a ready-to-run transceiver for amateur radio.

My vision for such a project is that any ham can get an old PC or laptop
in the shack, attach one of the common SDR devices and antenna, boot
from the DVD and start operating it like a radio in less than 5 minutes.
 As a first step, it might just be 2m FM but it could evolve to cover
many more bands and modes too.

Something like this is likely to help many more people get their feet
wet and become interested in the GNU Radio community.

Would anybody be interested in promoting something like this to students
or helping to mentor?

The project could potentially be mentored under the umbrella of either
Debian or GNU Radio, so this increases the chance of Google support for
the project.
