Okay! So apparently there is some interest in power line communication
GSoC. But, what we would want to do is already have a safe way of
connecting the USRP in to the wall socket for the student(s), and for
future of GNU Radio and USRP power line communications development.
So, as a goal of this thread I’d like to get some feedback on how we can
make this possible. Ideally, something off-the-shelf would be great,
providing the highest amount of safety for those experimenting with it.
Please keep in mind my background is not EE, but I am more than happy to
try and lead this and test/try/sacrifice what needs to be done.
Jonathan mentioned that for a project he was working on before, generic
50-ohm wall socket power couplers were made. I don’t know how difficult
would be to replicate something like this.
Evan M. suggested picking up some power line telephone extenders
from Radio Shack and dissecting them.
Ideally, I think we could connect whatever it is to a basic TX/RX.
Any thoughts here?
