Frantic last minute change of room. Due to the relative inaccessibility of
Stratton after 5PM, we moved to Campus Center room 128 (the Taylor Room).
This is on the first floor (down the stairs through the main entrance).
Sorry for the last minute notice

We've got a meeting next week!
Date and Time: Nov. 8th, 2018 @ 7pm
Location: *Stratton Hall Room 309*
Topic: GNURadio / Software Defined Radio / GQRX
Presenter: Ian Gelman
Here's what Ian had to say about his presentation...
I'd like to throw my hat in the ring and give an overview+demo of GNURadio,
a FOSS package for graphically developing DSP applications and interfacing
with Software-Defined Radios (SDR). I spent last summer at MITRE using this
software heavily, and I'm also using it for my MQP work. For the demo, I'd
like to bring down some hardware from my lab (
https://www.ettus.com/product/details/UN210-KIT) as well as the $20 RTL-SDR
to show reception of broadcast FM, ADS-B telemetry from airplanes, as well
as some real time views of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and streaming drone footage
from a DJI Phantom 3 Pro.
Here's the outline:
Why should we care?
Why do I care?
Who uses GNURadio?
Introducing the workflow/flowgraph interface
Cloning/Building/Installing (this won't be specific, just mentioning
the GitHub repo and where the quickstart guide is)
How to contribute (also GR-hackfest!)
GNURadio as a software development framework
Ex: GQRX (http://gqrx.dk)
For the demo, I'll show off some stuff I've made with GNURadio, as well as
GQRX to interface with the RTL-SDR. I'm pretty confident that I can cram it
inside of 2 hours, because I'll be basically recycling the slides I made
for my MITRE presentation, minus the branding and project-specific content.
As usual, drinks and snacks will be provided and we'll head out to dinner
NOTE: I will be unable to attend this meeting.
I am leery of the allegiances of any politician who refers to their
constituents as "consumers".
