The Board of Directors of The Yasme Foundation has made a supporting grant to establish Reverse Beacon Network (RBN) nodes in Algeria, Tunisia, and Libya. The project will be carried out by youth in the Amateurs Radio Algeriens and Association des Radio Amateurs Tunisiens radio clubs. The build out of these nodes will increase RBN presence in Africa for both the amateur and scientific communities. The Reverse Beacon Network is a network of global Software Defined Radio (SDR) receivers, monitoring amateur radio bands and reporting CW, RTTY, and FT8 signals to a central database.
