The M17 Project is developing a new digital communications protocol, similar to D-STAR or DMR, but fully open source, for the amateur radio community.
This grant is intended to advance all aspects of the project, including:
- Reflector protocol and linking.
- Packet mode.
- File transfer.
- Publishing research papers
- Getting the protocol through an official standardization process.
- Developing open hardware implementations that support M17.
- Repeater maintenance.
This project will be fiscally sponsored by Deutscher Amateur-Radio-Club (DARC e.V.).
