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
