Linux SDR demo'd on teensy computer

,----[ Quote ]
| The Communications Research Center Canada (CRC) has used Linux to demonstrate 
| a tiny software-defined radio (SDR) claimed to comply with the Software 
| Communications Architecture (SCA).  



Linux-based SDR targets 700MHz Femtocells

,----[ Quote ]
| Vanu Inc. and BitWave Semiconductor have demonstrated a Linux-based 
| software-defined radio (SDR) for wireless Femtocell base stations. Designed 
| to handle the 700MHz spectrum due to be auctioned in January, the SDR offers 
| simultaneous operation of multiple standards, enabling a fast transition to 
| multifaceted Femtocells, says Vanu.    


FCC ignores more than 100 years of wisdom

,----[ Quote ]
| In 1883 French cryptographer Auguste Kerckhoffs published a set of six 
| design principles for military encryption systems. The second of these
| principles is generally known today under the observation that security 
| through obscurity is not security. The Federal Communications Commission 
| (FCC) seems not to have read the history books or to be aware of how its
|  sister federal agencies develop security standards....


The FCC, FOSS, and software radios: a mixed bag

,----[ Quote ]
| After studying the new rules -- published in the Federal Register last month 
| and taking effect today -- the SFLC concluded that the laws are not 
| FOSS-restrictive because they "apply to hardware manufacturers who distribute 
| SDR devices, regardless if they use FOSS in them or not." And the Center says 
| that since the rules specifically mention the GNU/Linux operating system, the 
| FCC is actually acknowledging the importance of open source.     


Is The FCC Blocking Wireless Competition?

,----[ Quote ]
| With the nationwide expansion of fiber-optic wiring and digital delivery at 
| the turn of the century, the federal government reclaimed and is still 
| reclaiming large amounts of spectrum.
