The M17 Project
“The goal here should be to kick the proprietary protocols off the airwaves, replace DMR, Fusion, D-Star, etc. To do that, it’s not just good enough to be open, it has to be legitimately competitive.”About Us
The M17 Working Group believes that an Amateur Radio Digital Protocol should be open to experimentation and available for anyone to modify and use without having to pay someone for the rights to do so
All physical hardware designed by the M17 Working Group is made available for anyone to download, review, and modify to fit their needs
Designed by Ham Radio operators with the needs of a Ham Radio operator in mind. Open source voice codecs and digital data protocols for M17 are the design philosophy, keeping in the community nature of Amateur Radio
