RSGB Convention lecture 2017 – SDR: The station of the future
John Linford, G3WGV
Software Defined Radio is not new but improvements in design and cost reductions mean that it is rapidly becoming mainstream technology for discerning radio amateurs. SDR is as much a disruptive technology as were the advent of semiconductors or synthesisers. It is said that in five years it will no longer be possible to buy a new radio that is not SDR. We look at what SDR offers us as radio amateurs and what our stations might look like in a few years’ time.
