ARRL Homebrew Challenge

In the August QST, the ARRL announced a design challenge to foster the
development of a low cost homebrew HF rig.

After some feedback, they have revised the challenge.
The new rules are in the October QST and they now have
a web page for the ARRL Homebrew Challenge.

The new rules introduce a separate category for a computer
aided rig (perhaps a Software Defined Radio like the SoftRock-40.)

There wil be separate $100 prizes for a stand-alone rig
and for a "Computer Operated" rig.
