I know this is not a DSL topic per se, but I know there are some radio amateurs on the forum, so here goes-
I was wondering if anyone's experimented with GNU Radio or some other Software Defined Radio application on their DSL box. If you have, I'd be very interested in knowing the software & hardware you used, and if you were satiisfied with the results.
I'm in an astronomy group that monitors VLF radio transmissions (17-35 khz) to detect solar flare activity (the D layer of the ionosphere is sensitive to this). Most people in the group are radio amateurs, and use homebuilt VLF receivers & an analog to digital converter to collect data. A few folks are starting to use 96Khz sound cards & radio software to do the same thing. As my attempts to build a radio receiver have been unsuccessful, I'm looking at the sound card idea for Linux.
Any input welcomed,
