    Great Class, Thanks Joe for excellent instruction, not only in SDR, but Kali Linux, VirtualBox, GIS, and many other subjects. I will be following links for quite a while, and looking forward to next class. Also meeting other students is really cool. Thanks!!

    I would like help setting up my computer and can arrive at anytime requested. Please let me know when I should be there. Also, will this work on Apple with parallels installed or should I bring a windows based laptop? Thank you much, looking forward to hearing more about this format!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
