List of HF SDR Transceivers

Post by HighSNR » Sat Apr 06, 2019 6:17 am

Im looking for options for an SDR based Transceivers for HF. It seems like there is a shortage of options. Hopefully the RTL community can help me compile a list and perhaps give me some feedback as to how well they work at HF? Are there other radios that can be modified to work well at HF?

So far I have...
HackRF
LimeSDR USB
Fairwaves XTRX
Ettus with LFRX and LFTX daughter boards.

Also:

LimeSDR Mini

Raspberry Pi with an RTL-SDR (direct-sampling or with an upconverter) plus a narrow-band HF filter such as the TAPR 20M TX shield for use with PiTX.

The ones you've listed are mostly for 'experimentation'. There are a whole heap of amateur radio SDR transceivers.

e.g.

Softrock
Elad FDM-DUO
FlexRadio

It was an experimentation radio I was looking for. Something that works with GNU radio and has a bit more dynamic range than the HackRF for instance.

Try looking into the Hermes and openHPSDR projects.

I believe that there is a GNURadio interface module for those too.

Thanks for the info on that. I will definately look into openHPSDR and its derivatives.
