SDR

2 posts in this topic

Hi!

What do you think of SDR radios and kits ?

I know that Flexradio and maybe some others are selling high-end ( and expensive ) SDR based radios, so it is not an option.

Also from http://www.wsplc.com/acatalog/SOFTROCK-RXTX.html you can order Softrock RxTx kit.

So maybe building SDR based on that. <_< Then i would have to build ~20-30W PA stage.

But base KIT is quite cheap..

Or go with Rx only ? :S

I have no former experience with SDR ( except playing with SDR_IQ) so i have no idea which one to get.

Building one from a scratch is not an option due to lack of time.

Maybe someone here has played with cheap SDR solutions..

Actually, Tx does not even matter for me.

Most important thing is to get wide reception ( 96KHz )

Reception I would think is easy if you can transvert into the VHF-LO area and use a TV card (6Mhz bandwidth)

But I came across this site a while back... Might be exactly what your looking for.
