Very interesting.

First: You have to sign up (!) to get to the projects page.

Second: Unless you are familiar with the project the information provided is

Third: After looking through all the sites mentioned, I am still not sure
what "Penelope" is all about other than a 1/2-watt transmitter/exciter board
(????) for "Mercury" which sits next to "Sasquatch" on an "Atlas" bus.

Sounds great, but is there a "HPSDR for Dummies" 

I for sure need one :-)
