I saw this over at Slashdot.org and thought I would pass it along.
It would be really nice to have a receiver with this coverage and with the capabilities to transmit on 2 220 and 440. We will have to see what happens with this project....
Open-Hardware Licensed Handheld Software-Defined Radio In the Works
An anonymous reader writes
"Chris Testa recently presented at TAPR Digital Communications Conference and annouced his development work on a hand-held software defined radio. Running uClinux on an ARM Corex-M3 coupled to a Flash-based FPGA, it will be capable of receiving and transmitting from 100MHz to 1GHz. Designed to be low power, Chris has designed the radio primarily with the Amateur 2m and 70cm bands in mind. Currently in early prototyping stage, Chris intends to release the design under the TAPR Open Hardware License."
