Hi Daniel,

not to break your enthusiasm, but seeing that the GNU Radio Live DVD
works quite well right now, I don't really see the benefit of converting
it to Debian.

Regarding the Ham things: That's something that I can only emphasize:
Students, whatever qualification, experiences and projects you have done
with radio, it's probably not the worst idea to mention that! Also,
especially Ham Radio has a very active crowd, so if you can find a
project that suits you and you'd like to see it do something related
with amateur radio operation, it's very likely that you can get active
help here.

In general: Get in contact, do that early, talk about what you want to
do and what skills you bring and think you'll need to acquire. Every
positive interaction with the community definitely makes you more
valuable to the project :)
