Were you the people who wanted to set up an antenna on the lawn this
year?  If you want to participate in a way that (you think) falls
outside 'developer rooms', 'stands' or 'main track presentations', it's
probably best to get in touch with info@ directly so we can see what we
can do.

In case it's not obvious: most FOSDEM attendees are software with zero
background in electronics, let alone RF.  Having said that, the "radio
people" participation in recent years has been really popular, so we may
want to see how we can do more with that.

If you want to set anything up, please do get in touch with info at .
