PageOutline = Welcome to OsmoSDR =

OsmoSDR is a 100% Free Software based small form-factor inexpensive
SDR (Software Defined Radio) project.

If you are familiar with existing SDR receivers, then OsmoSDR can be thought
of something in between a FunCubeDongle (only 96kHz bandwidth) and a USRP (much more expensive).
For a very cheap (but inaccurate) SDR, you can use the DVB-T USB stick using the RTL2832U chip, as documented in [wiki:rtl-sdr].

It consists of a USB-attached [wiki:Hardware], associated [wiki:Firmware]
as well as gnuradio integration on the PC.

The hardware is currently in prototype stage. As soon as it is finished, we will
make it available through


Hardware schematics and firmware source code are kept in a git repository on * clone the repository like this: {{{git clone git://}}} * web-browse the repository: []

For a complete list of local wiki pages, see TitleIndex.
