Report from DCC 2007

About 200 hams and friends gathered at the 26th TAPR/ARRL Digital Communications Conference for 2007 was held in Windsor Locks, CT, Sept. 28-30, 2007.

Many great papers and conversations. I presented my talk (PDF), "SourceForge, Hamlib, and Rigserve: Free Beer, Free Speech, and Rig Control", which is also printed in a somewhat different form (PDF) in the Proceedings.

A few cheap photos from my Treo 650 phone:

Bruce had many fine insights into the state of the amateur radio world. For one thing, he noted that the average age at DCC is about 10 years less than at Dayton. "We are the future of amateur radio."
