George L. Heron, N2APB was first licensed in 1970 and now holds an Extra Class ticket. He obtained a BSEE degree in 1975 from the Rochester Institute of Technology and has been in high technology assignments ever since at Eastman Kodak, Edsun Labs, Dialogic Corp, SafeNet (CTO, vp Eng) and McAfee (vp and Chief Scientist). He is currently founder and CEO of a security consulting firm BlueFin Security (www.bluefinsecurity.com), specializing in advanced info assurance security and emerging technology companies. N2APB plays a lead role in the New Jersey QRP and American QRP clubs, and has been active in the QRP scene since 1996. In the past he has organized the annual Atlanticon QRP Forums, edited/published the quarterly "Homebrewer" magazine, andis a member ofthe QRP ARCI"QRP Hall of Fame". An inveterate homebrewer with strengths in software and digital design, N2APB co-designed the Micro908 Antenna Analyzer, DDS-60 card and numerous kits for NJQRP (www.njqrp.org) and AmQRP (www.amqrp.org). One of his latest projects is a PC-less, single board controller for portable PSK31 operation, called the NUE-PSK Digital Modem (www.nue-psk.com), for which articles were published in QST (Mar 2008), QEX (Mar-Apr 2008), and Circuit Cellar (Design Contest 2007). The most recent co-design project is the SDR Cube Transceiver (www.sdr-cube.com), which is a completely self-contained, embedded SDR transceiver for CW & SSB using a Softrock for the RF front end and a pc board implementation of an HF modem.A PC is not neededfor using the SDR Cube, as all DSP processing is accomplished by an embedded DSP processor on the three internal pc boards!
