I've started a page on the laptop.org WIKI, currently at:
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/User:Kronenpj to document what I've been
doing. Once I get it a bit further along, I'll see if the OLPC folks
want amateur-radio stuff in their wiki or somewhere else. In the
meantime, anyone with comments or suggestions, please use the discussion
tab and we'll work through things.
