What You Will Learn in This Week's Podcast:
- Jon Hudson is a co-creator of the SDRplay device.
- SDRplay manufactures both hardware and software.
- Before about 20 years ago, processing the radio chain was done exclusively on the hardware. Now computers are powerful enough to support doing most of this work with software.
- SDRplay was founded in 2014.
- The RSPDX has multiple antennae, which allows users to switch from one antenna to another quickly and easily.
- Because SDRplay makes their own software for Windows, they take a lot of time to make sure it works seamlessly out of the box.
- SDRplay acquired a company called Studio One that manufactured software about five years ago.
- SDRplay is releasing a scheduler, which will function as an audio recorder for a specific channel at a specific time.
- An advantage of the scheduler is that it allows users to tune in to certain frequencies at a specified time and then turn it off or move on to something else.
