Digital HAM-radio interface

In lots of development countries people do have acces to simple HAM-radios and sometimes also to laptops. To interface the HAM-radio with the laptop, one can use the soundcard. In the laptop, a modified software-radio can be used to access the radio-band available through the HAM-radio.
This project consists in searching available low-cost solutions for the connection between the laptop and the HAM-radio. Furthermore, you’ll have to write a hardware-driver for the software-radio so that it can use the soundcard to transmit digital data.

Prerequisites (1 is not important, 5 is very important):

  • HAM-radio knowledge: 3
  • Digital Communications: 3
  • Electronics: 3
  • C-programming: 3
