I have some room on my server. If you have a project that you would
like to see here, I can add it to my list.
If you want to learn about building an amateur radio tranceiver, you
can have a look at the Elmer 101 web
If you need a project or need inspiration for your next radio design,
have a look at my homebrew amateur radio page.
