[TenTec] Rebel

As someone who predicted technology advances and failures for a living, and was usually right, I would say the Rebel is one small step for a ham, one giant leap for ham-kind.

This will help bring into ham radio the computer-literate young people of today. These are the people who, if this were the 1950s and 1960s, would have come into amateur radio because it was the main venue for experimentation and technology in communications. This is great, not only for enticing new blood into ham radio, but for bringing a test bed and production environment to those who will develop new control and signal processing software. Imagine what displays, signal processing, and functions these kids will create!

Ten Tec should get a medal, or at least, special recognition from ARRL.

The group for the Rebel is already created and running on Yahoo. Richy N2ZD started it up back in May during Dayton, and it has grown quite a bit since then. Several developers already going to take the code and do a lot with it. The CPU being used is the PIC32, which, is faster/larger than the pic chip used in the 539 and 599, and it is only running a couple of features... So, it has a LOT of room to grow... The group location is: http://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/TenTec506Rebel/conversations/messages If this doesn't post properly, then go to the yahoo groups, and go to groups and type in TenTec506Rebel. Hate to steal a phrase that some may remember, but.... "the shape of things to come". Well, not all things will be exactly like this, no, most will be traditional in nature.
