Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Software-Defined Radio (SDR)?

SDR is a radio communication system in which components traditionally implemented in hardware are instead implemented (via custom software) on a personal device or embedded computer system. SDR systems can be adapted to integrate with various communication applications. Once integrated, SDRs can be used to scan for radio frequencies, listen to FM radio, track aircraft with ADS-B, receive GPS signals, dabble in amateur radio, decode digital voice, and even bounce signals off the moon!
