TAPR and HPSDR Join Forces!

TAPR (Tucson Amateur Packet Radio <http://www.tapr.org>), a non-profit,
membership-based corporation, has pioneered advanced digital technology
in Amateur radio for the last 25 years.  In 1999, TAPR entered the SDR
world by kitting the DSP-10, a 2-meter multi mode, software defined
radio designed by Bob Larkin, W7PUA.  TAPR also encouraged the SDR-1000
development, providing booth space at Dayton in 2003 for the fledgling
company.  Similarly, TAPR supported the GnuRadio Project and Matt Ettus'
USRP, providing them Hamvention exposure in 2005 and 2006.  Many papers
on SDR have appeared in the proceedings of the annual Digital
Communications Conference co-sponsored by TAPR and the ARRL.  TAPR is an
active supporter of open-source software.

HPSDR (High Performance Software Defined Radio <http://hpsdr.org>) is an
ad-hoc group of enthusiasts working to provide building blocks for
software defined radio and related technologies.  The initial efforts
have resulted in open hardware and software, led by a motherboard, USB
interface with FPGA, and a very high performance, multi-channel ADC and
DAC.  Many other modules are proposed or in development.

TAPR will be supporting the development of various HPSDR modules,
helping to disseminate information into the Amateur Radio
community through venues such as the Digital Communications Conference,
and providing a storefront for boards and kits.

The first kit effort is for the Atlas motherboard
<http://www.tapr.org/kits_atlas.html>.  TAPR is initially providing a
complete kit of parts for the PCB, but not the PCB itself.  After the
initial batch of PCBs, provided by Eric, AA4SW, has been shipped, TAPR
will add the Atlas PCB to its catalog.

As other modules are developed, TAPR will provide development support
and kits, semi-finished or possibly completely assembled boards.  The
format for each module will be decided on its own merits, community
desires, and practicality.

TAPR is a volunteer organization, part of the Amateur community, and is
looking for assistance within the HPSDR community to help make the HPSDR
projects not just a reality, but ubiquitous among the Amateur community
embracing the promise of Software Defined Radio.

Please join us in support of this pioneering effort.
