this is just the beginning but if this list could get out to who ever, i'm sure we can find it all. people should contact cosmo.simplecircuit@gmail.com for more info or suggestions. we have had a great turn out of donations! Thanks everyone who has helped so far! so now we have *MOST* of a space ready to use. xxadraviaxx has painted the "lounge" green and black and gold (nice!) we have pegboards and tables out for project to happen on. a Dell poweredge server that now is our server running Ubuntu at the moment. The conference room has desks and various snack with a white board and space to set down for some of our Wifi!

We are now ready to take a few more members (we think we can support a total of 10).

as far as current projects, here is a quick list:

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=Work Station Recycling Project=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
  • we need to test, canabalize, and inventory a whole bunch of machines and boxes of hardware that is in the workshop room and storage closet.
  • We could build a few machines for the space to use or sell them for toy-money or if someone thinks of a better idea we should do that :)

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=RF Probe Project=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

  • have an multi directional antenna with built in rotor
  • have a scanner with all the scematics and test points needed
  • need freq.s of all relevent stations in area
  • need a DB table in rails project for "stations": geo-coords, callsign, timestamp, freq., id
  • need a table for each "reading": rotor position, geo-coords, timestamp, RSSI, id
  • need a javascript gmaps interface to plot mined "dopler-like" data
  • need an Atmega micro to control / interface via some serial (USB?)
