Decoding Software that Interfaces with SDRs

From The RadioReference Wiki

This page is devoted to identifying those SDRs that can either directly interface with various digital decoding programs, or DSP audio programs. For the purpose of this page, we are not considering the multi-kilobuck professional SDRs, as most hobbyists could never easily afford them.


Corrections and additions to this page are solicited.


Digital Decoding Software that can interface with SDRs

These programs can interface with the listed SDRs without the use of additional cables; some may require a set of DLLs to be installed. Please see the HF Software Decoders page for links for the software. Many of the SDRs listed here have links found in the SDRs with HF Coverage article.
