      I am working thru my build of the Ensemble RXTX. I am posting notes on my blog as I work thru the various stages.  http://www.hoaglun.com/blog/

      For the receive test I got it working with QUISK+Ubuntu in about 10 minutes of setup.

      It is pretty cool to listen to 20m from RXTX at the workbench.  The SDR could become addictive after this project is completed. (This will be a 28Mhz IF for a 28/144 transverter driving a my 902 and 1296 transverters when the project is done.)

        Definitely addictive.
        Other software such as linrad and sdr-shell consume considerably less
        CPU (low single figure) than quisk, python being an interpreted language.
        Keep on at it and enjoy.

          A lot of the heavy lifting in Quisk is actually done in C, with Python
          bindings to let you glue it all together.

          You didn't mention lysdr ;-) That's pretty lightweight too, and not
          terribly heavy on dependencies. It works well enough for me, and unless
          people start telling me what they'd like to see changed I'm not going to
          devote much time to it...

            I forgot that Gordon.
            As a matter of fact while going through my files tonight I found lysdr.
            I haven't used it in a while, files in lysdr-0.0.5 are dated 18th.
            august, the ones in lysdr are dated 21st. august.
            Has there been any more recent development?
