experience.

The GRHW will be run by Dr. Tom Rondeau, who will briefly speak about
the current state and future directions of the GNU Radio project.
Afterwards, a brief GNU Radio tutorial will follow.

Then attendees will work individually or in groups to implement a
communications system from scratch, with guidance from on-hand staff
to answer questions and help with problems. A working system will be
presented at the end.

Attendees are required to bring their own laptops, but USRP radios as
well as bootable live USB flash drives will be provided. Nothing will
need to be installed on attendees' laptops.
