currently the project is in preparation for the open-source release,
read the update on:

Currently I am constructing a set of 10 experimental sets for World Wide
KORUZA to get organizations and research institutions to deploy the link
for 12 month period to observe the performance.

By preparing this experimental equipment, generation 5 KORUZA prototype
documentation is being prepared as well as the instructions for DIY
construction of unints. I expect to have it done by the end of October,
then anyone will be able to construct these currently very experimental

Kind regards,
