Evaluating 9 of the Best Single Board Computers for Modern SDR Systems
This past August I had the privilege of attending and video-recording the TAPR Digital Communications Conference in Albuquerque, NM. For several years past, this conference was recorded by Gary Pearce from HamRadioNow, but Gary has since retired from making Ham Radio videos (the series was handed off to David Goldenberg, W0DHG, who is doing a great job with new episodes). In lieu of this fact, I spoke with Gary and with Steven Bible, the administrator of the DCC, and was permitted to take up the mantle of recording all of the forums and putting them on YouTube.
With this first forum, Scotty Cowling, WA2DFI, presents his findings for 9 of the best Single Board computers for modern SDR systems. Among these boards are, of course, the Raspberry Pi, but several others are also discussed. I thought this information was valuable and useful to those of us who want to do Amateur Radio projects. This applies not only to SDR Receivers and Transceivers, but also for dozens of other projects in our hobby.
As Scotty states in the video, lots of time and research was put into this presentation because the information he gathered isn’t readily available in one place. He spent quite a bit of time digging for the information about SBCs to present in this forum.
I hope that you enjoy watching this forum as much as I did.
I don’t see a link to the video. Is it just me or is something wrong?
It is the embedded video with the play button at the bottom of the post.
What play button. All I can see is a black box, no centre play button I can see. I have tried two pc’s now with the same result.
I was also unable to get a link.
I don’t know, then. It shows for me and I also tried 2 computers. I will send an email to Matt and ask him to look, but he emailed me earlier today and thanked me for posting this, so I assume he can see it.
Try this folks. It should be a link to the Youtube page for thw video:
I spoke to Matt, W1MST, and he tested the blog post on multiple platforms and devices and has no issues seeing the embedded YouTube video.
Thanks Dave, that is also the correct link. But folks who can’t see the embedded video probably have some kind of ad-blocker or plug-in that is restricting them from seeing the entire blog post.
