That's the question.  I think you might be able to get data through  
the USB port.

I may have to back off the idea of doing the actual DSP in the iPod  
because getting the raw I/Q data into it is hard.  But wherever the  
DSP is done
that processor could depend on a standard web browser for it's user  
Then the iPod or iPhone could be used as the display device with zero  

Said another way, if the SDR software used HTML as it's user interface  
any appliance that contains a browser could be the SDR controller.

I just bookmarked the amrad.org site.  I'll look it over   Thanks
