New GUI for rtl_power: QSpectrumAnalyzer

A new GUI for rtl_power has been released by programmer Mikos. Although there are already several rtl_power GUIs and spectrum analyser applications that exist, Mikos developed QSpectrumAnalyzer because he found that the alternatives were either slow, closed source or Windows only.

Rtl_power is a command line tool that can be used with an RTL-SDR to create a spectrum scan of a large swath of bandwidth that is greater than the RTL-SDRs maximum sample rate.

The project can be found at and Mikos is open to pull requests on GitHub.
