On that note, if anyone has any software-defined radio hardware, it'd be
great if you could bring it at 6 pm tomorrow so more people can play with
SDR techniques. I'd like people to get hands-on experience at this stage.
That includes the cheap RTL-SDR USB TV tuners, any model of Ettus
Research's USRP, or the new HackRF boards.
It'd be best if you have tuners and antennas usable for 1.575GHz, but I
imagine we'll play with broadcast FM or something first as a gentler
introduction to RF, so any SDR hardware will help.
