QO-100 Useful Links
QO-100 Useful Links / Collection
At the beginning, it was not easy to find useful information or a quick start guide for QO-100 operation, needed stuff etc. After some hours of searching in the internet, I found the reasons for it: - New bandplan (e.g. different frequencies for beacons) - Different solutions are created by the QO-100 community (e.g. use what is/was available, like SDR radios) - new ham radio band (e.g. 2.4GHz and 10GHz techniques) You need to find / define your way!
