OsmoSDR is a 100% Free Software based small form-factor inexpensive
SDR (Software Defined Radio) project.

If you are familiar with existing SDR receivers, then OsmoSDR can be thought
of something in between a FunCubeDongle (only 96kHz bandwidth) and a USRP (much more expensive).
For a very cheap (but inaccurate) SDR, you can use the DVB-T USB stick using the RTL2832U chip, as documented in [wiki:rtl-sdr].

It consists of a USB-attached [wiki:Hardware], associated [wiki:Firmware]
as well as [wiki:gnuradio integration] on the PC.

The hardware is currently in prototype stage. As soon as it is finished, we will
make it available through


Hardware schematics and firmware source code are kept in a git repository on * clone the repository like this: {{{git clone git://}}} * web-browse the repository: []

For a complete list of local wiki pages, see TitleIndex.
