GNU Radio vs Softrock

    Is it true that no one has ever built a GNU Radio source or sink block for the Softrock Ensemble Rx or RxTx? It would only be an audio source/sink with access

      Is it true that no one has ever built a GNU Radio source or sink block for the Softrock Ensemble Rx or RxTx?  It would only be an audio source/sink with access to the frequency setting, ptt, and keying functions, not too much work at all.  Give it an opensource license and it could be included in the next release of GNU Radio.

      In contrast, http://sdr.osmocom.org/trac/wiki/rtl-sdr built a GNU Radio source block for the Realtek RTL2832U a few months after the DVB-T dongles were hacked last spring.  There is already a GNU Radio project that implements a complete GPS / Galileo / Glonass receiver/decoder on top of that.

      I just watched the introduction to GNU Radio from last fall's TAPR DCC, http://arvideonews.com/hrn/HRN_Episode_0051.html  and it's a pretty good 4 hour tutorial.  It would be better if they had posted a link to the live CD image the participants were using, but no one seems to have saved that part of the presentation anywhere.

        Very interesting stuff. I have watched part 1 and downloaded the other parts for viewing at leisure.
