Countdown quay st is open 24 hrs But no alcohol overnight (can't remember what time they stop+resume selling alcohol - 11pm or midnight)
 +
* Countdown metro on Victoria St (opposite elliot st) is probably the closest.
 +
* New World on Queen St (opposite Shortland St in the former BNZ food court)
 +
Both Countdown + new world is smaller than the countdown in Quay St + New World at Victoria Park.
 +
* they all have stuff for gluten free, egg free, dairy free, vegetarian diets (eg gluten free breads etc). They also have butchery, bread, deli, etc. just the smaller ones have not as big range.

== Markets ==

I like markets as they are a good place to find the best NZ local produce (especially the farmers markets).  "Farmers market" in nz means things they sell has to be made/grown within a certain radius of the market's location. They tend to be organic or spray free too. Authenticity http://www.marketground.co.nz/fmnz/35275/
  
== Attendees ==
+
* Britomart Farmers market on Saturday
 +
* Parnell Farmers market - behind the jubilee building on Sundays
 +
* La Cigale French Market in Parnell. on Sat + sundays St Georges Bay Rd. Can walk from carlaw park accommodations. Doesn't comply with "farmers market" rules. La Cigale (the shop which started the market) has imported french cheeses and wines as well as other kitchenware. However there's many stalls there that would comply within the NZ farmers market regulations.
 +
Very very good market. There's a gluten free sausage stall there too.
  
Please add a page for yourself and link it here so we can get an idea of numbers and notify you of updates.

=== Aims ===

Further afield (for travellers) the Matakana market on Sat morning is worth
 +
visiting if you're on the way to visit the marine reserve at Leigh.
  
This will be the second Open Radio Miniconf, this time part build-a-thon, part lightning talks.
+
*  Wellington City Market- there's a foodies market on sunday

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.
+
== Pharmacies: ==
 +
This pharmacy is in the same bldg as Countdown. It is open 9am - 9pm  7 days a week (unlike the one at uni which closes around 5pm.
  
2) Build an understanding of the software required to Rx and Tx
+
Quay St Pharmacy
  
3) Encourage software developers to study existing over the air protocols and start to design new ones.
+
Countdown Building
  
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].
+
Store Hours
 +
Open 7 days 9 am to 9 pm
 +
  
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.
