There are many ham radio topics that involve free software but not SDR

There are also SDR topics that don't involve ham radio.

However, maybe the ham radio group could communicate with the managers
of the SDR dev-room to propose a new title for the room, e.g. "Ham and
SDR" and a description of the room that covers both of these fields.

We also have the Debian Hams[1] group in Debian and would welcome a copy
of the CFP on our mailing list[2].
