M17 is a community of open source developers and radio enthusiasts. We're building understandable systems in support of the hackers and experimenters' history of ham radio.
M17 is developing new open source hardware, software, and a digital radio protocol for data and voice, made by and for amateur radio operators.
M17 is about unlocking the capabilities that amateur radio hardware should already have.
Here you will find people working on radio hardware designs that can be copied and built by anyone, software that anyone has the freedom to modify and share to suit their own needs, and other open systems that respect your freedom to tinker.Donate Buy a T-Shirt!
