Monday 12th January 2015: Open Radio Miniconf
+
  
=== 'No pressure' policy ===
+
If you are arriving at your accommodation outside of their regular reception hours, please leave your details here so we can organise out-of-hours reception.
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.
+
  
=== Commitment to Diversity ===
+
=== Uni Halls ===
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.
+
'''Reception hours: 8am - 8pm. '''
  
=== Suggested Presentation Topics ===
+
'''After hours phone: 027 676 4862'''
  
Any topic which is related to both radio and open source technologies is considered on-topic for the Open Radio Miniconf.
+
(your name, date & time of arrival)
  
Some ideas include:
+
James (Ender) Brown, Fri 09/01, ~10:30PM
  
* Hardware for SDR
+
Jonathan Woithe, Sat 10th, 20:00-2100 (plane arrives 18:55)
* Software for SDR
+
* Protocols over the air
+
* Digital voice
+
* Understandning data modes
+
* Encoding and Decoding data
+
* Logging data or voice
+
* Positioning
+
* Radio direction finding
+
* Here's a cool thing I did with my SDR
+
* Take a look at my new modem for digital modes
+
* Simple data links with cheap radio chips
+
  
=== Presentation Format ===
+
Himangi Saraogi, Sun 11th, ~16:00 (plane arrives 14:50)
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).
+
  
=== Need some help? ===
+
=== Carlaw Park ===
If you have an idea (or the beginning of an idea) for a presentation for the Open Radio Miniconf, we'd be very happy to talk it through with you to help you develop it further. Email Kim VK5FJ at vk5fj@wia.org.au or ping him at @vk5fj on Twitter to start the conversation.
+
'''Reception hours: 8:30-5pm and 6pm-7pm Monday to Friday, 11am-1pm Saturday and Sunday. '''
  
=== Code of Conduct ===
+
'''After hours phone: 027 707 9813'''
Anyone presenting at the Open Miniconf is bound by the same Code of Conduct as presenters and conference attendees of the main conference. The full LCA2015 Code of Conduct is at http://linux.conf.au/cor/code_of_conduct
+
  
To help ensure that presentations comply with the Code of Conduct, we require presenters to submit a copy of their presentation/slide deck for review by Monday 5th January, 2015 (one week prior to the start of LCA).
+
(your name, date & time of arrival)
  
=== Presenter Responsibilities ===
+
* Clinton Roy, Fri 9th, ~midnight (plane arrives 22:45)
Presenters at the Open Radio Miniconf must be registered attendees of the main LCA2015 conference. Presenters are responsible for their own conference registration, travel, and accommodation costs. 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.

=== 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 [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.
+
 
+
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.
