Jeremy McDermond joins NW Digital Radio

Jeremy McDermond, NH6Z, has joined our team.  Jeremy is Vice President and a member of the board of directors of TAPR (www.tapr.org) and well known in the amateur community for his work with Software Defined Radio (SDR). He is author of Heterodyne, a software defined radio application for MacOS X and iOS devices supporting the OpenHPSDR (www.openhpsdr.org) project hardware.  Jeremy’s latest creation is Buster, a recently released application supporting the ThumbDV and PiDV on MacOS X.

You may have seen Jeremy speak at a variety of conferences including Dayton Hamvention, MicroHAMS digital conference and TAPR/ARRL Digital Communications Conference.  He has been active in the Summits on the Air (www.sota.org.uk) hiking to the tops of many mountains in the Northwest United States to make QSOs with his trusty KX3.  He also operates the T2OREGON APRS-IS server.

When not immersed in ham radio, Jeremy serves as Network Engineer for a small web hosting provider in Corvallis, OR and has been a UNIX systems engineer for nearly 20 years.  He is also a member of the Oregon State Bar Association and practices law in a variety of fields.

We are excited about adding Jeremy’s skills to the team and look forward to his contribution to the UDRX and other products.
