BeagleBone Black and Software Defined Radio #beagleboneblack @TXInstruments @beagleboardorg

  1. Using the RTL-SDR is great for very high or ultra high frequency work, but doesn’t go low enough for HF amateur radio use. I wrote code for the PRU that uses an external DAC and synthesizes SSB modulated PSK31 encoded data on the 80m and lower bands. Details and source code: http://trmm.net/Soft_SSB

  2. Thanks for sharing Trammell! You never fail to impress!
