Practical Application of Software Defined Radio

A Tutorial by Bdale Garbee

The fundamental idea behind Software Defined Radio (SDR) is to replace as much of the dedicated analog electronics in radios and related communications systems with computer software as possible. This can both make existing communications systems more flexible, and enable entirely new applications.

This tutorial will reprise the technical and political background material on Software Defined Radio and the GNU Radio project presented by the speaker at the last two LCAs. Then, a mixture of demonstrations and hands-on activities will show participants how to get started using GNU Radio to participate in this fascinating area of Open Source development.
