Program: "Emerging Remote Architectures" by David Shoaf, KG6IRW

There is an emerging new facet to the ham radio hobby in the form of Remote Control. Using new web services, the ability to effectively control a radio from anywhere in the world is now possible. In this presentation, we will explore how these web services are being utilized to deliver the radio experience.

Topics will include:

- Emerging Remote Architectures
- The Gatekeeper Role
- Privacy in the Community
- Maintaining Control
- Implementation: Problems yet to be solved

During the presentation, there will be use cases shared to illustrate the dynamics Remote Control can provide.

With a background in RF and audio engineering, David opted to build computer products for data centers for the next 30 years. David has worked in every facet of designing, building and running computing systems typically found in data centers today. He has served in product management, sales, standards committees and in distribution management throughout his career. David retired from HP in 2005.

After a career in the computer industry, David came back to his roots in RF with Elecraft. He first received his First Class Radiotelephone license in 1978. David received his Extra Class ticket as KG6IRW in 2000. A former denizen of Silicon Valley, David has worked for Elecraft for over 3 years and lives in Capitola, California, with his wife, Sharon, also a retired HP engineer. Sharon and David have 1 son and 2 grandsons.
