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 Radio][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.
