Description of the talk:

In 1976 I submitted decks of punched cards as homework for my first
Fortran class, and earned my entry-level amateur radio license. Over the
course of my adult life, as both computer and radio technologies have
evolved, the computer has become an essential part of the amateur radio
“shack”. I’ll talk about how it’s gone from being used for station
control and logging, to supporting digital modes; finally, with Software
Defined Radio (SDR), it’s become the radio itself! I’ll also describe
some Internet sites used for reporting space weather and making
propagation predictions, and online logging, including the public-key
signature system used by 112,000 users for the American Radio Relay
League’s Logbook of the World.

 Presenter Bio:

Joe Chapman, NV1W, has been fiddling with radios and computers since he
was a teenager in the 1970s. After graduating from MIT, he has been
involved in more hardware and software startups than Zsa Zsa Gabor has
had husbands. His most recent startup having been acquired by Red Hat,
he now works on storage optimization in the Linux kernel. In amateur
radio he generally works with low power, using Morse Code or weak-signal
digital modes. He has done two solo cross-country bicycle tours, plays
the pipe organ, does calligraphy, and cooks.
