Open Source Software Defined Ham Radio Receiver Up And Running!

Tonight I was able to fire up for the first time the receive portion of my HPSDR, a GNU-type open source software defined HF radio. I was able to hear WWV on 15Mhz, and some folks on the 20m maritime net on 14.300. Pretty cool!

I ordered a Penelope exciter board too, but TAPR shipped me an Ozy by mistake — I didn’t realize it until I opened the box today. Hopefully they’ll find me one.

Some more pics (iPhone, not great quaility) of the fun after the jump…
