I have a number of projects underway, and much larger number queued – there are so many possibilities! I’ll list the projects here and try to keep at least a summary of how they are progressing, if nothing else it may help me procrastinate less and get more done.

Resilient Radio

This project is the development of an autonomous radio station designed for community use with many functions to aid emergency management. https://winzurf.co.nz/resilient-radio/

Eastbourne FM – LPFM community radio station

This project is the spin-off from Resilient Radio in response to the Covid-19 pandemic in my local community. Essentially a community radio station streaming and broadcast. https://winzurf.co.nz/eastbourne-fm/

Ironically – the Resilient Radio has the scenario for a Pandemic included in the software but it’s just a placeholder scenario – I regarded it as a possibility in some areas of use but not here in New Zealand.

Digital Notice Board

Many in the community do not use social media or other technology for information. A digital notice board at our local library is being explored to provide both static and dynamic information as well as video to library users (inside screen) and passers by (outside screen). This display can utilise the same data as the radio station for display, and can also be used to broadcast the station itself when appropriate (when no video playing). Details and progress is given here.
