In this episode we talk about Software Defined Radios with Ria Jairam, N2RJ. Ria has been a ham since she was a teenager but we won’t say how old she is now, that just wouldn’t be right. She is very knowledgeable about amateur radio, as well as IT topics as that is what she does for a living. She is another example of how amateur radio can help you in your professional career, because she was able to find and get her job through her amateur radio contacts.
We start out by giving just a general overview of what software defined radio is and where it came from. Did you know that you can actually see like 30 MHz of bandwidth on your screen at one time. Some radios allow you to select up to eight different frequency radios and show an individual waterfall display for each of them! How cool is that.
We talk about some uses for SDR’s in amateur radio and some of the equipment that you need to use one.
I also have a special offer that yall might be interested in as well, but I can’t tell you what it is, you have to check out the show notes or listen to the episode to find out.
