Airspy Direct Digital Converter (DDC) Modification

The Airspy software defined radio comes with breakout pins that connect directly to the analogue to digital converter (ADC) inputs. By connecting an antenna to these inputs together with experimental software it is possible to receive frequencies between 0 – 10 MHz. This is the same trick used in the RTL-SDR direct sampling mod. However, to get decent reception and to keep the Airspy circuitry safe, a low pass filter and isolation transformer are required.

Over on YouTube W9RAN discusses this mod in his latest YouTube video.
