We are excited to announce that we are working with KiwiSDR to bring Software Defined Radio to the BeagleBone.
KiwiSDR is a software-defined radio (SDR) covering shortwave, the longwave & AM broadcast bands, various utility stations, and amateur radio transmissions, world-wide, in the spectrum from 10 kHz to 30 MHz. The KiwiSDR is a custom circuit board (cape) you attach to a BeagleBone Black or Green. Add an antenna, power supply, internet connection, then install the software package and be running in minutes.
An HTML5-capable browser and internet connection will let you listen to a public KiwiSDR anywhere in the world. Up to four people can listen simultaneously to one receiver -- each listener tunes independently.
The KiwiSDR project has launched on kickstarter. Please help us make this happen by backing us!
