Title : rtl-sdr.com

Description : RTL-SDR (RTL2832U) and software defined radio news
and projects. Also featuring Airspy, HackRF, FCD, SDRplay and more.

Title : SignalsEverywhere PlutoSDR Videos: Applying the Frequency
Extension and Dual Core CPU Hacks and Running on SDR#

Description : Over on the SignalsEverywhere YouTube channel,
Corrosive has uploaded two new videos about the PlutoSDR. The
PlutoSDR is a low cost (typically $99 - $149) RX/TX capable SDR with
up to 56 MHz of bandwidth and 70 MHz to 6 GHz frequency range. It
also has an onboard FPGA and ARM Cortex-A9 CPU. By default […]

Title : Running SDR# in a Windows Virtual Machine on Linux

Description : Thanks to John Jackson of JRMagnetics for writing in
and letting us know about his post on installing SDR# onto a Windows
Virtual Machine (VM) running on Fedora Linux. As John notes, running
SDR software from within a virtual machine essentially freezes a
working version of your setup in a virtual image. It's then possible
[…]

Title : New SDR# Plugin Adds Support for Contour Shuttle USB
Controllers

Description : The Contour Shuttle Express and Pro V2 are USB
controller accessories for PCs. They consist of a knob-like wheel
with multiple buttons and they are designed as a keyboard replacement
for improving the productivity of video/photo editors. However,
several people have found them useful for controlling software
defined radio receiver programs like SDR#. Recently SDR# […]

Title : Steve M Talks about Osmo-FL2K at Osmocom Conference 2018

Description : Osmo-FL2K can be considered as the [evil] transmit-side
brother of RTL-SDRs. It is a driver that allows cheap $5 - $15
USB 3.0 VGA adapters to be used as a transmit-only capable SDR. It
might be considered [evil] as transmitting illegally and without
filtering can pollute the RF spectrum, but being responsible with
it and […]

3.0 VGA adapters to be used as a transmit-only capable SDR. It might
be considered [evil] as transmitting illegally and without filtering
can pollute the RF spectrum, but being responsible with it and using
appropriate filters could enable extremely low cost transmitters. 

Title : YouTube Tutorial: Software Set up for a Portable Raspberry
Pi and RTL-SDR Based NOAA Weather Satellite Receiver

Description : Last year in December we posted about Matt's element14
sponsored video which showed us how to create a portable briefcase
contained NOAA satellite received based on a Raspberry Pi and
RTL-SDR dongle. The build consisted of a heavy duty briefcase,
modified ATX PSU and stripped down LCD monitor panel. This build
resulted in a rugged […]

sponsored video which showed us how to create a portable briefcase
contained NOAA satellite received based on a Raspberry Pi and RTL-SDR
dongle. The build consisted of a heavy duty briefcase, modified ATX
PSU and stripped down LCD monitor panel. This build resulted in a
rugged and portable receiver. The full series of videos demonstrating
the briefcase, ATX PSU conversion, LCD teardown, and NOAA satellite
receiver demo can be  found on his YouTube Playlist . 

Title : Using an Airspy HF+ with SDR# and WSJT-X to Decode FT8 +
SpyServer FT8 Decoding Demo

Description : Over on YouTube user TheGazLab has uploaded a video
that reviews the Airspy HF+, and also shows how to use the HF+ with
SDR# and WSJT-X in order to create a FT8 monitor. The Airspy HF+ is
high dynamic range HF/VHF receiver designed for DXing. In the video
TheGazLab demonstrates to us the decoding in real time, and […]

Title : rtl_map: A Simple FFT Visualizer for RTL-SDR

Description : Thank you to 'KeyLo99' for submitting news of the
release of his new RTL-SDR based program called rtl_map. rtl_map
is a currently a simple app that uses an RTL-SDR to display an FFT
frequency graph. It is based on the gnuplot and fftw3 libraries. Over
on our forums KeyLo99 describes the motivation behind the project

Title : Running GQRX Smoothly on an Intel Compute Stick with a
Custom Linux Kernel

Description : Thank you to M Khanfar for submitting news about his
custom Linux kernel which allows an RTL-SDR and GQRX to run smoothly
and with sound on an Intel Compute Stick. The Intel Compute Stick
is a full dongle based computer the size of a pack of gum with

smoothly and with sound on an  Intel Compute Stick . The Intel
Compute Stick is a full dongle based computer the size of a pack
of gum with pricing that starts from US$120. It has a Quad Core
Atom Processor, 2GB RAM, 32 GB of built in storage and an HDMI
out port. By default the stick comes with Windows 10 installed,
but M Khanfar notes that it is very sluggish.
