A new kind of HAM Radio controller and toolbox
Presented by Edouard, W6ELA, Founder of Wizkers: Radio
What if someone told you: you can use ANY computer to control and configure your rig - it doesn't matter if you are a Windows, MacOS, Linux, Android or even Chromebook user?
This presentation is about a new open source application, Wizkers:Radio, built on top of the http://wizkers.io/ framework, that is a universal rig controller, radio configurator and general HAM RADIO Swiss army knife.
Eduoard will describe the capabilities of Wizkers:Radio, how you can use it on your phone or computer, including Raspberry Pi's, and how you can contribute to its further development.
Have a look at http://wizkers.io/wizkersradio for more information - Eduoard will be ready to answer any question you have during the presentation and mention some thoughts for future applications of Wizkers:Radio.
