Hello, I should preface this post by saying that I'm a highschaool student studying engineering and electronics, although software development is not my strong suit. An important part of my senior year is the Senior Project, which I will be developing over the next year and a half. I will also be testing for my General license this week, and I expect to pass. I wanted to ask the QRZ forums what they thought about a typeface IRC client that uses ham radio frequencies to transmit text and possibly small images using discrete radios, if possible. Outline: - IRC client allowing the typing and sending of text - Uses Ham frequencies, possibly data (30 meter) or even digital -> analog CW signal -> digital translation - Possibly, an IOS app allowing for local retransmission using LAN, and failing that, discrete transmitter/recievers Client features: - License validator, required validated input to use a callsign and transmit - Small profile images, one-time send, < 150KB - Cache files for friends lists and profile pictures - Possibly a channel scanner that scans valid bands/frequencies/channels and then delays messages to check if the band is free before transmitting (would require development, but is a seller point) It's perhaps not the most useful thing, but being able to send IRC messages without internet access is pretty cool, and I'd like to make a fairly unique senior project. Does QRZ think it's possible? Thoughts/comments/criticism/suggestions/volunteers welcome! Thank you for your time in reading this lengthy post.
