SDRSharp Scanner Plugin Tutorial and Demo

Over on YouTube, userĀ radiosification has posted a video showing how to go about setting up the SDR# Scanner plugin. This is a great way to get your RTL-SDR to function as a radio scanner so you don’t have to manually tune the bands. It assumes you already have your RTL-SDR installed and configured to work with SDR# but walks you through the rest of the process of installing and using the plugin. The download page for the plugin is in Russian but the video shows how to translate the page and find the download link. If you’ve used this plugin before, leave a comment and let us know any tips or troubles you may of had.

Radiosification has also posted another video showing the SDRSharp scanner plugin being used to scan the airband which is located between 108mhz to 137mhz.

Linux Embedded RTL-SDR Receiver

Janos over at embrtlsdr has a new post regarding his work making a Linux powered SDR using RTL based dongles and Ethernet.

“The basic idea was to run the small rtl-sdr util on a small embedded box connected with the dbv-t dongle at near the antenna, and transmit the data on ethernet connection. The more processing and vizualization can be continue on the desktop/laptop machines.
To this setup I choosed my old small linux box, the NSLU2. It has 2 USB conncetors, network connection, and, more than 2 years ago I installed on it a Debian lenny version, on a 4 Gbyte pendrive.”
