Last Monday members of REAST were proud to be able to take part in and present at the Linux Conference Australia 2017 as part of the Open Radio Mini Conference at Wrest Point Convention Centre.
Linux Conference Australia is a weeklong event, with a number of 1 day mini conferences held over the first days of the event followed by 3 days of main event and selected presentations.
There were a number of fantastic talks at the event on Satellites, Getting into Amateur Radio, HPSDR, 10GHZ EME, Hamlib along with a panel discussion. One of the fantastic things about LCA was that all the sessions have been recorded and placed on Youtube, with the links below:
- Are you ready for Amateur Radio? – VK7BEN
- 10GHz EME Propagation – VK7MO
- Overview of HPSDR – VK7TW
- Open Source & Radio Panel
- Hamlib Support for OpenSDR – VK1ATP
- Decoding Satellites with SatNOGS – VK7LXX
All Sessions were well attended with anywhere between 30 and 50+ people sitting in the room listening to the presentations
Also at the conference was Steve Conklin AI4QR who presented as part of the main conference on the Phase 4 Geosynchronous Satellite Efforts in progress with AMSAT. This was a fascinating presentation and can be found by following this link.
Special thanks to Scott VK7LXX who was the organiser of the successful mini conference. Scott was also one of the core conference volunteers being responsible for mini conference liaison and maintaining the Linux.conf.au Website. Well done Scott!
