It can be used with readily-available, low-cost external RF hardware to create software-defined radios, or without hardware in a simulation-like environment. It is widely used in hobbyist, academic, and commercial environments to support both wireless communicationsContinue reading “GNU Radio – the Free and Open Software Radio Ecosystem”
