Hi linux enthousiasts,

When I saw this coming past on the WebRTC mailing list, I immediately
thought of all the awesome Ham Radio operators in the LA community.

I think you will find the video at
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Xlc4juU53o that describes the use of
RemoteHamRadio.com very interesting.

To: discuss-webrtc at googlegroups.com

I just wanted to share a real-world application of WebRTC that I have
helped develop. RemoteHamRadio.com is a service that lets amateur
radio operators ("hams") remotely control radio stations right in the
Web browser. We use WebRTC for audio streams (transmit and receive) as
well as data channels to directly control the radio.

Receive audio is piped out of the radio and into the microphone port
of the remote PC. When the user transmits, the audio stream at the
station goes straight out of the PC and into a radio, which is then
modulated and transmitted as RF to be heard around the globe by other

You should see the reactions when we tell people they don't have to
download any proprietary software, plugins, or Flash, and that it
works on any OS. "Flabbergasted" comes to mind.
