I have built a Lite version to do this, on the IF out frequency of my
902DM. Be aware that the Softrock didn't, in my case, "track" the
frequency of my 902 properly. I didn't persevere but it's on the "to
investigate" list. I would like to find some way of forcing the panadaptor
frequency display to exactly mirror the frequency readout of the 902.
I am not even sure if this is possible. As it was it showed the band,
but didn't track the 902's frequency, which seemed a bt useless. I
suspect operator / set up error.
