*** Devoted to understanding and discussing ham radio technology ***

The New England Radio Discussion Society wants you!

Tuesday, August 20th is the next meeting of the New England Radio Discussion Society. At that time, WA2WSD will show NERDS attendees an interesting project he's been working on, based on a BeagleBone Black board. Paul's $45 board runs a 1-GHz ARM chip, packs 2 Gbytes of flash, and includes gobs of I/O, including Ethernet, USB, and HDMI.

Mobile Video
Paul uses his mini-system for a mobile vision project in his car. The BeagleBone and a bit of outboard circuitry let's Paul run a USB webcam powered off his car's cigarette lighter. Video files are loaded into a microSD card for later review.

Paul will also show some pictures he took at the recent Providence, Rhode island Mini-Maker Faire last Saturday, and discuss a bit about the maker movement.

C U There!

As usual, we'll convene at 7-PM at The New School on Rt. 1 in Kennebunk. Remember, there are no dues, rules, or membership requirements for NERDS participation.

Bring along something for show-and-tell Tech Tales, too.
