I'm looking to buy my first sdr receiver.
I found an Alinco DX-R8 that seems to offer sdr capability but not being an elmer I'm not sure if it's a "true" sdr or is just some sort of pc controlled receiver. Anybody familiar with it?
The alinco website says:
●I/Q signal output allows use of third-party SDR software.
The software supplied is KG-Sdr: http://www2.plala.or.jp/hikokibiyori/soft/
Can one run other sdr software with this receiver? I've never heard of kg-sdr before
I'm also reading the following and find it very informative. Might interest some of you.http://www.qsl.net/4/4x1zq/4all/ham/Practical%20SDR%20Applications%20for%20Ham%20Radio.pdf
