Raspberry PI and SDR

After playing with RTLSDR on windows for a little while I decided to get it up and running on a few of my Linux boxes. After that I decided to see if the SUPER CHEAP raspberry pi can handle it. Well it took a little playing with but I have it up and running!

For those not familiar with the raspberry pi it is a linux based “computer” for just ~$25.00 USD. You can find out more info on the PI at the website below.


Low resource SDR:

http://sdr.osmocom.org/trac/wiki/rtl-sdrDue to the high number of requests for info on this I will be adding lots more pics and info with more details.

First off what are you running on your pi? I received one of the first rounds of shipments of the PI and have installed other OS builds which are not longer available on there site. I will start with one of those those since that is what I happen to have used.
