Sound Card

Post by P-40 Warhawk » Wed Jul 30, 2014 12:06 am

I have gotten to the point were I would like to start decode radio signals . Now I am not sure were I read that I would need a good sound card to do the decoding because the sound chip the mother of the computer isn't good enough to do the job . Would someone be kind enough to let me know if I need a sound card ?????????? :?

You might have been reading about older SDRs which required a sound card as a data input. The newer ones like the RTL-SDR don't need a dedicated soundcard.
