M17 Protocol Project
The M17 project is an open source digital radio protocol, code, voice codec, and hardware project. M17 is a new digital radio protocol in development as an alternative to those currently available (DMR, D-STAR, Yaesu Fusion, etc.), with freedom in mind. Freedom in the code, protocol, voice codecs, and hardware. The goal is to provide a better option for digital radios in the future.
The M17 Working Group is a team of several people from around the world. Headed up by Wojciech (SP5WWP) in Poland, there are several other Amateur Radio operators involved – putting their skills to work with the desire for a more free and open digital radio protocol that can be used world wide!
You don’t have to be a licensed Amateur Radio operator to join the M17 Project. If you have skills in circuit design, microcontroller programming, CAD/CAM, circuit board prototyping, UI/X design, network and systems administration, end-user experience testing and QC, or you just want to build something – join us!
