Re: Completed Peaberry Working on latest PSDR 2.4.4
- Great post. Thanks.
I appreciate the extra information as I learn a bit more about the SDR topic in general and enjoy playing with the Peaberry I built last month.
I had a hard time figuring out a few things but with the help of several people on this board it all came together and now I wonder why I was so 'challenged' because it's all rather straightforward.
Next stop is definitely to play with PowerSDR.
