Thank you for posting this. I will definitely participate. 

There’s been a lot of effort over the past 4 years to include and enable amateur radio participation and representation in GNU Radio, especially at the conference. 

This includes multiple technical presentations, on-site special event stations, very successful license exam sessions, three years of amateur developer summit meetups, amateur-friendly vendors, a dedicated room for amateur demos in 2018, and more. 

I think this effort has paid off in several significant ways, and I hope it continues in the upcoming SETI era. 

I look forward to the published results and will help spread the word about the survey.

I am doing a survey regarding the topic of GNU radio usage in amateur radio


This survey is aimed at GNU radio users who are also amateur radio operators.

The result of the survey will be published in an article freely available on

the Internet and may also be translated to other languages for reading by

other amateur radio operators.

Your contribution to the survey will remain anonymous unless you express a

wish to have author attribution for the answers.

You should be comfortable with the license of publication which will be one of

Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 license or GNU Free Documentation license.

You may reply directly or send me the answers privately. The date limit for

answers is 30 December current year.

I will ask you to respond to the following questions (you may omit questions

where you do not have answers):

1. Are you actively using GNU radio in amateur radio activities?

2. If yes, how are you using GNU radio, please provide some details.

3. Do you think GNU radio and applications using it solve some specific problem

for amateur operators which is not solved by other free software DSP

libraries, or, on the contrary, do you think it should implement a solution

that already exists elsewhere?

4. What would you consider strong and weak points in GNU radio when related to

amateur radio usage?

5. Is your local amateur radio community generally aware of the existence of

GNU radio?

6. If you have any authored / co-authored published papers, talk slides,

seminars etc. related to the topic of this survey, can you provide a short

description and a link if available?

7. Are you involved in research projects which use amateur radio crowd-sourced

data, and if so, can you provide a short description of the project?

8. Do you have any suggestions for raising general amateur radio public

awareness of free software in general and specifically GNU radio?

Thanks in advance for answering.
