Hi Nathan,

I appreciate the time you spent reading the draft and providing such detailed feedback. I have uploaded some related MATLAB code on my github account [1]. I have added some snapshots in the directory as well so that one can see the output without running code. Also uploaded java code written for android application that plots spectrum (magnitude and phase) of data received on Bluetooth [2]. I have added these in my proposal. I am mentioning here for quick reference. I have updated my proposal according to your feedback. You can find updated proposal  here:


Thanks again for your feedback.

Looking through the proposal I mostly see your translation of the idea from the GSoC ideas list to a proposal format. All of that is fine, but we've already decided this is a reasonable idea and the proposal should convince us that you're the right person to work on it.

You've provided the right evidence that you've read some of the GSoC pages, but my current criticism boils down to missing information that we ask for here: http://gnuradio.org/redmine/projects/gnuradio/wiki/GSoCStudentInfo

I'll point out *some* specifics but please don't just list responses to these things in the proposal. Rather reshape it to giving us an idea of what you want to do (which you have) and why you're the right person. The list I'm providing is not meant to be exhaustive, and I'm not suggesting that you're not the right person to do this, just that you haven't addressed that (or your eligibility for GSoC in your proposal. It's also possible I am being dense and missed some of this information.

From the page I linked you're missing:
* Proof of your coding capabilities (this is the big one)
* University and student status (more of a formality)
* why do you want to do *this* project? (this is not critical, but if you've done any classes or work in areas related to your proposal idea than that looks very good)

Ideally this is all more than a single sentence that says "I did a matlab simulation once in a class and it was cool", but much less than a college admissions essay on why DSP will save the world.

Looking forward to the next draft (and hopefully faster turnaround),

PS - most of this email can be copy and pasted as feedback for several other proposals I've read so far.

I have added lambda _expression_ in deliverables based on Tim's comments. This will allow user to enter lambda _expression_ in GUI. That _expression_ will be then evaluated on samples and result will be displayed. Rather than providing fixed mathematical function (scale/normalize), user  can apply anonymous functions, they want, on samples using Lambda construct. This will give user more flexibility. I have updated my proposal. You can see it on following link


Awaiting feedback.

I have made my proposal for the subject GSoC idea. Please have a look and give feedback. Thanks for your time.
