Software Defined Radios

With the launch of FlexRadio, the amateur radio community is beginning to pay serious attention to the concept of software defined radios. Many of us, like myself, are VERY late-comers to this most fascinating topic.

With special thanks to WA5MLF for calling these to my attention, let me suggest for those of you interested in learning more, check out the four-part series by Gerald Youngblood, AC5OG. They were published in the Jul/Aug 2002 edition of QEX.

SDR Part 1 - SDR Part 2 - SDR Part 3 - SDR Part 4

WA5MLF has also pointed out a very good general discussion of software defined radio on Wikipedia.
