Re: 40/30 RXTX+XTALL in the mail Linux support?

Hamfest and I am pretty sure he said all of their SW is GPL. I think
I also heard him say they develop in Linux but compile for both XP &
Linux. However I have not yet looked for their Power SDR in source
code or in a compiled version for Linux. I think their formal
delivery is in XP (no Vista yet, but reportedly they have a running
version in Vista).

problems of porting the GUI which is written in C#.
However, PowerSDR is open source and can be downloaded using svn from:
The core DSP code (DttSP) has been ported to Linux (and Mac OSX) and is
also open source and can be downloaded from:
The current version of DttSP that most people are using is the
There is also code in the linux repository for controlling the SDR-1000
and more recently some code has appeared to support the SDR-5000.
Several of us have been developing GUI software using DttSP.
I have one some code written in Java which is open source - see
Edson Pereria has developed an SDR-Shell written in C and using the Qt
toolkit - see http://ewpereira.info/sdr-shell/
Also take a look at http://dttsp.org/wiki/index.php?title=Main_Page and
also join the dttsp-linux Yahoo group where most of the communication
about running an SDR on Linux and Mac OSX can be found.
