Software Defined Radio (SDR) information

Software-defined radio (SDR) is a radio communication system where components that have been typically implemented in hardware (e.g. mixers, filters, amplifiers, modulators/demodulators, detectors, etc.) are instead implemented by means of software on a personal computer or embedded system. While the concept of SDR is not new, the rapidly evolving capabilities of digital electronics render practical many processes which used to be only theoretically possible.

Here are a few SDR radio information links. I will add more as I find them or other people recommend them:

SDR # (sharp) - SDR software that works well with the RTL-SDR dongle: http://sdrsharp.com/

Using SDR # software with RTL-SDR dongles and other Software Defined Radios can seem complicated. I personally struggled with finding guidance on how to optimize the many parameters in the SDR# software. 
Well I found a link to a great blog posting that does a nice job explaining many settings in SDR#. Find that blog post here: http://tylerwatt12.com/tips-for-using-sdr/

Using SDR# is pretty cool once you understand the settings and get them adjusted properly. So don't give up on SDR# or your dongle without trying some of the tips in this article.
