this is just the beginning but if this list could get out to who ever, i'm sure we can find it all. people should contact for more info or suggestions. we have had a great turn out of donations! Thanks everyone who has helped so far! so now we have *MOST* of a space ready to use. xxadraviaxx has painted the "lounge" green and black and gold (nice!) we have pegboards and tables out for project to happen on. a Dell poweredge server that now is our server running Ubuntu at the moment. The conference room has desks and various snack with a white board and space to set down for some of our Wifi!

We are now ready to take a few more members (we think we can support a total of 10).

as far as current projects, here is a quick list:

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=Work Station Recycling Project=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
  • we need to test, canabalize, and inventory a whole bunch of machines and boxes of hardware that is in the workshop room and storage closet.
  • We could build a few machines for the space to use or sell them for toy-money or if someone thinks of a better idea we should do that :)

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=RF Probe Project=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

  • have an multi directional antenna with built in rotor
  • have a scanner with all the scematics and test points needed
  • need freq.s of all relevent stations in area
  • need a DB table in rails project for "stations": geo-coords, callsign, timestamp, freq., id
  • need a table for each "reading": rotor position, geo-coords, timestamp, RSSI, id
  • need a javascript gmaps interface to plot mined "dopler-like" data
  • need an Atmega micro to control / interface via some serial (USB?)
