Current Projects that I am working on.
RadioReference.com has a raspberry Pi distribution that allow you to stream from your radio to their listening platform. I thought I would give this a shot, and setup a small receiver tuned to my local repeater, and broadcast that to the radioreference.com platform. I had a spare Pi and soundcard and a spare radio – so in 30 mins or so I had it all up and ready to test.Learn More
Amateur TV interests me because I do a lot of Video work (Live vision switching) in my day job. Here in Sydney we have very little information about ATV but there is real activity. The best way to find out whats happening is to setup a receiver.Learn More
This is a project all about connecting Google Home up to a radio. The concept has already been proven, but I have not seen it implemented for real. It would revolutionise the way that we interact with repeaters and gateways.Learn More

Future Project that I am looking forward to
- DMR Hotspot
Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) is a land-mobile radio network standard developed by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI). DMR is used by thousands of professional land-mobile radio networks worldwide. A wide variety of DMR mobile, base and portable equipment is available from numerous manufacturers. DMR uses Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) to provide two 30 ms “slots” per 12.5 kHz radio channel. Each slot can carry independent voice conversations – this means that each DMR repeater provides two simultaneous voice channels – illustrated in the diagrams below:
