==Spaces, New Lines, Paragraphs, And More==
 
You might have already noticed that single spaces between lines do not create spaces in the text. For example:

The Open Radio Miniconf is a low-pressure event, and we strongly encourage anyone who has an idea for an radio-related talk to submit a proposal even if you've never presented at a conference before. Please share this CfP with anyone you know who may otherwise not consider submitting a proposal.
  
'''Remember:''' For the sake of clarity, it is best to place a line break, but not necessary.

=== Commitment to Diversity ===
 +
We are especially keen to present a diverse range of experiences and voices, and actively encourage women and people from other groups that are frequently under-represented at tech events to submit a proposal. Please share this CfP with anyone you know who may fit with this objective.
  
==Emphasis==
+
=== Suggested Presentation Topics ===
'''Hello!'''
+
  
''How Are You?''
+
Any topic which is related to both radio and open source technologies is considered on-topic for the Open Radio Miniconf.
  
This is basic, but important. Use three apostrophes for bold text and two for italics. The above section was made like this:

Some ideas include:

* Protocols over the air

* Understandning data modes

* Logging data or voice

* Positioning

* Simple data links with cheap radio chips

=== Presentation Format ===
</nowiki></pre>
+
Presentations will be 'lightning talks' session with multiple 5-15 minute mini-presentations. Ideally we would like to see proposals for longer lightning talks, you can also just present on the day (this is a very low-pressure way to ease yourself into presenting, so please have a think in advance about what you'd like to present).
  
HTML encoding also works. For <b>Bold</b> and <i>Italics</i> you would use the following:

OpenRadio Miniconf registrations

Good morning all,

So now would be a good time to open up the registration for the OpenRadio MiniConf. This is also a good time as a reminder that the CfP for the miniconf will be closing on the 14th of December.

As part of the registration you are booking a seat and a kit for the OpenRadio miniconf.

Since this is our first build'a'thon at LCA we are setting a limit on seats to 30. We are aiming to dedicate enough time to each of the participants to complete the kit on the day.

The whole day will be devoted to building the understanding the kit. As we have limited seats, please order only one kit.

Extra kits will be made available after the conference.

Because of the time lines, we will be ordering kits in advance and will deliver them directly at the miniconf.

To register please head to Davids site;

Commitment to Diversity

We are especially keen to present a diverse range of experiences and voices, and actively encourage women and people from other groups that are frequently under-represented at tech events to submit a proposal. Please share this CfP with anyone you know who may fit with this objective.

Suggested Presentation Topics

Any topic which is related to both radio and open source technologies is considered on-topic for the Open Radio Miniconf.

Some ideas include:

  • Hardware for SDR
  • Software for SDR
  • Protocols over the air
  • Digital voice
  • Understandning data modes
  • Encoding and Decoding data
  • Logging data or voice
  • Positioning
  • Radio direction finding

The LCA2015 committee has made available a small number of miniconf-only passes that we will be using to enable Amateur Radio enthusiasts to present who would not otherwise be able to attend.

How to Submit Proposals

Aims

This will be the second Open Radio Miniconf, this time part build-a-thon, part lightning talks.

There are three specific aims for this coming LCA, the three layers;

1) Build an understanding of radio and build an SDR transceiver to cover an ISM band and the HAM HF bands.

2) Build an understanding of the software required to Rx and Tx

3) Encourage software developers to study existing over the air protocols and start to design new ones.

That might not sound like a lot, but we still have a big challenge to complete the second goal. The third is obviously ongoing and we hope to be able to help facilitate new works on the ISM and HAM bands.

Mark VK5QI has decided that his experience with the Tayloe mixer with I&Q as used in the SoftRocks is firm ground on which to build. He has been inspired by some new SSB project by NT7S, using a newly available DDS, the multiple output SI5351. Completing the picture, the controller is the well known Arduino, designed by Massimo Banzi (check the recent soldersmoke podcast #165).

So moving forward the second prototype is currently on the workbend at Marks QTH. The software stack, while complex can be simplified to using existing applications like FLDIGI or building the GNU Radiostack.

Following on the the how in the now, we need to look forward. Thinking about the existing protocols, the current ways of encoding data on the wire and over the air, we are aiming to approach the design of new over the air protocols.

We are currently working through the materials for the build-a-thon. Once we are happy with them we will update this page and put an announcement here.
