Re: [Xylo-SDR] Contest Announcement

I'd second Phil's comments -- this thing is likely to be used for more than SDR 1000 things (I hope) and tying it to a particular manufacturer/SDR implementation is probably a bad thing

Are we naming this board or the group/project in general?

Some ideas for names, some for the group, some for what we hope to build: Don't care for many of these (there's a reason I don't work in marketing) but 'tis what came to mind.

For what we hope to build:


For the current IO board:
Modem Radio Experimenters Board
Not Your Father's Ham Radio Board
21st Century Ham Radio Board
FPGA assisted SDR

For the group:

Homebrew SDR

I thought the reason why you wanted to redefine the name was to get
away from the association with XYLO/FPGA4Fun?  It seems to me that
having Flex-(anything) in the name only associates the project with
Flex Radio instead of XYLO/FPGA4fun...

I think Flex-(anything) is a bad idea.  This project should have it's
own identity and the name should not be tied in to any company, IMHO.
