LLN killed the radio star : Stay tuned !

General description

Hey you, yes you! I've heard that there'll be some kind of awesome event in Louvain-la-Neuve next July... Have you ever wondered how things such as modulation, communication channels, reception, error correcting codes and multi-antenna transmission works? During the course you'll have the opportunity to apply and observe the various concepts in practice with software defined radio equipment. You will also measure and demodulate real-world telecommunication signals.

So if you you want to :
