  7. Windows - SpectraVue (for SDR-IQ) http://www.moetronix.com/spectravue.htm
  8. Both - LinRad http://www.sm5bsz.com/linuxdsp/linrad.htm
  9. Linux - sdr-shell http://ewpereira.info/sdr-shell/
  10. Linux - John Melton Java https://java-sdr.dev.java.net/
  11. Linux - GNURadio http://www.gnu.org/software/gnuradio/
  12. Linux - my own work-in-progress
  13. Both - DttSP (sdr dsp core)

The Charleston SDR group is working on a few special projects:

Hardware: A lower-cost Direct Down-Conversion (DDC) receiver using a Digilent Nexsys II demo FPGA board, along with a plug-in board that uses a 12-bitm 80Ms/s A/D converter and a VGA. Details to follow.

Software: A Linux-based SDR software package. This is being written in QT/C++ in the Eclipse development GUI. There is not guarantee that this project will ever see the light of day, but we are learning a LOT about SDR software, and interfacing to the DttSP sdr-core. DttSP is used in many SDR software packages, including PowerSDR, sdr-shell, etc.

Links to some of this hardware & software will show up shortly. Terry
