IEEE-CS: 21st Century Amateur Radio


The Atlanta IEEE Computer Society meets on the first Wednesday of each Month from 12:00-1:00 PM at Manuel's Tavern. Please join us for another interesting technical presentation!

In the 20th century, radio equipment transitioned from spark gaps to vacuum tubes to transistors to integrated circuits. Now, in the twenty-first century, it is increasingly possible to implement an entire radio system in software. Bill Perkins, President of the Atlanta Radio Club, will be discussing the state-of-the-art in Software Defined Radio as it relates to Amateur Radio. He'll discuss some of the important ways that SDR differs from analog radio systems, and will also demonstrate some of the transceivers that are available.

This will be a very informal presentation, so feel free to bring your questions about SDR or HAM radio in general!
