HCKSYD RF Village
23 and 24 November, 9:30 AM - 5 PM
RF Village & TrainingRadios are everywhere, and RF technology is applied in places that you might not even have thought of, and this usage is only going to grow. Come learn how basic Radio technology works, what you can transmit and receive, as well as the legalities you need to keep in mind before blasting the entire CBD with RF interference (hint: don't).The RF village is a space to allow participants the opportunity to learn and experiment with a variety of RF devices and technologies. As a bonus, we may even inspire your next revolutionary project idea! We'll be doing a few live demos with the Flipper Zero, a variety of SDR’s as well as other radio equipment. Training will focus on real-world use cases and interesting projects you can perform with an RTL-SDR.Disclaimer: no responsibility taken if this workshop also inspires your next eBay spending spree.
