RX-888
« on: May 15, 2023, 1330 UTC »
I donít know how recent this is.  Phil Karn KA9Q is developing a multi channel program to work with the RX-888 receiver.  He calls it KA9Q-Radio.  I donít see a date on the sdrutah page.  The youtube link looks to be a month old.

This Youtube video has Phil talking about it.

edit:

KA9Q-Radio is actually designed to work with multiple radios, like the RTL-SDR and the AirSpy.  The neat thing about it is the ability to simultaneously decode multiple channels.  A radio that could capture the entire HF spectrum, like the RX-888 might have, would allow the ability to capture all HF at once.  In the video Phil shows how he has been capturing every 2M, 440, and 220 repeater in his location all at once, using 3 Raspberry Pi computers, and saving to disk.  He said he had 2 years of data, occupying about 2 TB.

Phil says his code is relatively stable now and he is looking for other programmers to develop better end user interfaces.
