More verbiage. Pretty good verbiage, I think.

<h3>Getting Started</h3>
<em>Coming soon.</em>
The menu on the left leads to the main areas of this site. If you are new to
software-defined radio, you might want to start by reading some of the
<b>frequently asked questions</b>. If you've been here before, you might
want to check out the latest <b>news</b>. <em>Navigate to these things using
the menu.</em>
The University of Utah and the GNU&nbsp;Radio team are collaborating to
develop and enhance new infrastructure resources for the SDR community. <a
href="">Ettus Research</a> is responsible for the
development and delivery of the <b>Universal Software Radio
Peripheral&nbsp;(USRP)</b>: a programmable, low-cost, high-performance, and
open software radio platform. You can buy USRPs for your own purposes, or
you can use USRPs in community testbeds (described below). <a
href="">Blossom Research</a> is responsible for
developing and improving <b>GNU Radio</b>, a toolkit for building real-time
signal processing applications and utilizing the USRP. GNU Radio is free
software, and you can download it for free. Finally, University of Utah's <a
href="">Flux Research Group</a> is developing the
hardware and software infrastructure to use the USRP and GNU Radio for
testbed-based research and education. In particular, the University is
enhancing its <b>Netbed</b> testbed with numerous USRPs and new software to
make an easy-to-use and remotely accessible SDR testbed available to the
research and education community at large. <em>Use the menu to learn
more about all of these activities.</em>
Finally, the <b>SDR&nbsp;Wiki</b> is where you will find all sorts of
information that has been contributed by the SDR community. If you're
looking for pointers to research projects, pointers to software and
courseware, pointers to mailing lists, standards, tip and tricks,
opinions... hopefully, you'll find it in the Wiki! If what you're looking
for isn't there, you can make the world a better place by <b>contributing</b>
your writing and ideas to the Wiki. <em>Visit the SDR&nbsp;Wiki to learn
