Daniel,


The ham-radio info booth of 2015 was the result of the devroom 
gnuradio/software defined radio of 2014 where we had a number of people 
saying "concidering the audience for this devroom, why not try to 
promote ham-radio a little bit while we are there".
So that is why we where in the building where that devroom was held.


But, of course, as ham-radio is all about communication, 
signal-processing and with some homebrew electronics thrown in, you 
could probably link it to multiple devrooms at FOSDEM.
But feel free to make a little bit of publicity for our infobooth / 
demonstrations in your corner of FOSDEM :-)


Cheerio! Kr. Bonne.
