Google Summer of Code opportunities for ham radio and SDR

I've started preparing some ideas for Google Summer of Code projects I'd be willing to help mentor this year and one of them is for ham radio, with a focus on software defined radio (SDR).

Can you help?

If you can help as a co-mentor or simply help refer students for this project please get in touch with me.
