But, if you don't need the graphical real time Spectrum rendering on (a
large) screen, just the audio demodulating, that can save a huge ammount
of CPU grunt, as can not using a GUI desktop.
What did we do before live spectrum displays? Oh... Turned a dial...
But yes, "point and click" tuning is nice to have.
I will be trying the Dongle Server scheme myself as soon as I can get the
time to fiddle. Have Pi, and the RTL dongles are cheap to buy.
I could certainly use a remote front end if for receiving only, to get it
away from the urban EM Fugg.. (Pi, RTL based Dongle, a PA0RDT miniwhip
+ upconverter. Perhaps all PoE powered too?)
