    TAPR[1] has announced the presentations for its Dayton Hamvention[2]? Digital Forum, moderated by Scotty Cowling, WA2DFI, on Friday, May 20, at 9:15 AM.

    Among the presentions will be "SatNOGS - A network of open source satellite ground stations," by Corey Shields, KB9JHU. CubeSat operators tend to have few ground stations of their own and rely on radio amateurs to help collect telemetry. The SatNOGS Project is a Network of Open Source Satellite Ground Stations, focusing on Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellites. Shields will introduce SatNOGS as a way to increase the amount of data collected and reported from these CubeSats.

    Bryan Fields, W9CR, will present "HamWAN High-Speed IP Radio Network," an Amateur Radio high-speed IP backbone concept that uses the same techniques enabling the Internet.

    The topic of a presentation by Chris Testa, KD2BMH, will be "SDR Disrupt." It will review the landscape and advancements in SDR technologies over the past year, as numerous technologies are driving the power-price-performance curve to a new level of efficiency. Latest developments in digital voice will also be discussed.

    "Spectrum Monitoring with Software Defined Radio," by Mike Ossmann, AD0NR, will follow.
