    Thanks for the link! Follow-up classes are definitely planned and we can definitely work this kind of antenna into either an advanced SDR class or the antenna theory class.

    Great class Joe, thanks again. Maybe we can do a follow on class to build better antennas. This article had a good design that we could knock-out in an evening.

    The class was very interesting. i learned you can pass all kinds of data by radio and even by audio. The instructor definitely knows the subject and is a good "speaker" (radio pun - haha)

    I hope this works:

    This should cover all the materials for class except for the 1090 program which needs to be compiled manually (see the sites noted in the presentation for the details)!

    Thanks to everyone that attended; I really appreciate the input and questions. As soon as I get better acquainted with GNU Radio, I'll have a class dedicated to it.

    Take care and talk soon!

    Look forward to doing this again! If any one has ideas regarding additional class content, please let me know and I'll try to address them if not already included. Thanks!
