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 [http://www.norcalqrp.org/files/Tayloe_mixer_x3a.pdf Tayloe mixer] with [http://www.qsl.net/zl1wtt/I&Q.htm  I&Q] as used in the SoftRocks is firm ground on which to build. He has been inspired by [http://nt7s.com/2014/06/a-prototype-for-a-si5351-based-ssb-rig/ some new SSB project by NT7S], using a newly available DDS, the multiple output [https://www.adafruit.com/search?q=SI5351&b=1 SI5351]. Completing the picture, the controller is the well known [http://arduino.cc/en/Main/arduinoBoardNano Arduino], designed by Massimo Banzi (check the recent [http://soldersmoke.blogspot.com.au/2014/09/soldersmoke-podcast-165-arduinos.html 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 [http://w1hkj.com/Fldigi.html FLDIGI] or building the [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GNU_Radio GNU][http://gnuradio.squarespace.com/ stack].

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 announe here.

Description

Welcome to the LCA2015 Delegate Wiki hackathon page. We'll be meeting at the Makerspace at Central City Library on Saturday 3-Jan-2015 from 1pm-4pm, to hack on the LCA2015 Delegate Wiki. This will be a single, short burst of unified effort to work on the structure and content of the LCA2015 Delegate Wiki before the conference starts.

Attending

The hackathon is open to any lca delegate, speaker, volunteer, or organiser to participate in, whether you can be there in person or not. ᏜᏠᎶᏠᏑ will be at the Makerspace between 1pm and 4pm, and would love to see as many Auckland-based helpers there as possible. We'll also register a temporary IRC channel on FreeNode during the event, called ##linux.conf.au-wiki, along with a Twitter hashtag of #lca2015wiki, which can be used for participants from outside of Auckland to communicate with those physically present at the Makerspace. There will be a computer set up at the Makerspace specifically to watch these channels, which any attendee at the Makerspace can use.

Goals

Please add to the list below, anything you think we should specifically be working on for the LCA2015 Delegate Wiki during the hackathon. We'll try to cover as much as possible during the event, but may not get around to everything on the list.

  • Floorplans for the OGGB building, showing locations of each room, the registration desk, amenities, etc
  • Maps of the surrounding area, showing the locations of the NICAI and the Campus accommodation particularly
