One Charleston Board alive and well!

Corky and all,

Alberto, I2PHD, has written a nice program called WINRad and has posted 
a bunch of docs and *source* at

and linked from

It is a nice demod program and I have used it with my SDR-IQ.

It looks like enough information is there to write/modify a DLL to use 
this with the Charleston receiver.  Particularly attractive is the 
source code so we can move a function out of the computer and over to 
the FPGA, one function at a time or entirely new functions.  Kinda like 
a lego set for SDR design.

I have added tacos to this email so everyone can see what is going on 
with the Charleston receiver.

Has anyone else had a look at adapting WINRad yet?
