In commemoration of the 20th Anniversary of ARISS, the International Space Station is transmitting Slow Scan Television on 145.800. The SSTV event started on the 20th July and will continue until the 24th.
Some of you may have noticed that my website has undergone significant changes. This was a consequence of my old website being compromised and and infected by malware.
Now that I finished my Omnia SDR for the 60, 40, 30 and 20 meter bands, I started looking into how I could use it on Linux. I remembered reading some emails on the project mailing list about using Quisk, which is a mature SDR transceiver application written by James Ahlstrom, N2ADR. I decided to give it a try.
Tonight I completed the TX part of my Omnia SDR for the 60/40/30/20 meter bands 😀
I have collected a bunch of old Raspberry Pi model B’s equipped with the Wolfson audio board. You may find these board lying around and collecting dust, as they have been obsoleted by an increasing number of multi-core boards. I will use these boards as simple Softrock SDR receivers, but first I want to do a little experiment. I am going try using them as a headless FreeDV modem similar to the SM1000.
