OpenGD77 publicity

Post by kd2lh » Wed Feb 12, 2020 4:10 pm

Before I consider working on this, I want to gather the thoughts of the GD77 development team and project leadership.

I would be interested in writing an article for publication about the GD77 project and the technology advances it incorporates.

I'd like access to materials we've been sharing and discussion (with credit given when used) as well as to be able to discuss some of the design and project approaches.

Thoughts? Is this a good time to get started on this?

Hi Marc

The project is open source so is effectively in the public domain.
There is an overall


However, I'm not sure about the individual posts on the forum.

The T's and C's when signing up to the forum are all to do with privacy and the European GDPR etc, and I don't think there is any assignment of copyright of any posts to the forum as a whole. So you'd probably need to ask permission if you wanted to use individuals photos and diagrams etc

Is the project ready for this (I'd estimate a few months to write it and get someone to consider publishing it)?

The firmware is a long way from completion.

The bugs list is still huge, and a loads of basic functions still have to be written e.g. SMS.
We're back to just 2 main developers at the moment, me and Daniel.

So I don't expect that things like SMS are going to get implemented any time soon.
