Hi Steve,

It is worth a try, but I am not so sure the formality of lightning
talks, as used in a large conference, will work so well with a small
group like CLUG.

The best one I have seen was by Adam (you know which Adam I am talking
about, Adam) at Ruxcon several years ago. Love to see it repeated...
It was good partly because he was racing the clock all the way through,
but mostly because it was very interesting and somewhat comedic
(timing, irony etc.)

I'll can do a short talk on SDR hacking (open source etc. of course).
I'll keep it to under 5 minutes... ... ...
