OpenRTX: an open source firmware for ham radio devices

Started in March 2020 and following the important work done by the OpenGD77 and md380tools projects, the OpenRTX projects aims at developing an open source firmware for ham radio devices, designed to be modular and easily extendable towards both new and already existent devices and transmission protocols. The project is actively supporting an promoting the open source phylosophy in ham radio by implementing protocols like M17, a free and open source protocol for digital voice and data, and preferring open hardware devices when chosing new targets. This talk will take tour of the project, presenting its history and describing the general structure, also providing some details on the supported platforms, the current development status and the future extensions and development plans.
