Thanks to Charlie WA3ITR and Dan Brown, W1DAN I got the opportunity to share my experiences with Software Defined Radios and demoing Flex3000 that I have been using for a bit over one year now.
We built a HF station in the club meeting room with Charlie by pulling some 200+ feet of coax through windows and across the yard to my Tarheel mobile HF antenna mounted on my car.
Here are the slides I presented
I did also a real live demo of the Flex3000 in action using
- PowerSDR to show 40m band activity, how the software defined radio works in practice
- Ham Radio Deluxe for logging, looking at DX clusteractivity etc.
- Fldigi to make a PSK31 QSO
- JT65 for HF QSOs
It was great to meet so many other hams - there seem to be a lot of interest in SDR and I got many great questions during the meeting.
Thanks again for a great meeting!
