RTL-SDR: What frontend?


what frontend (beside gnuradio itsself) is recommended for software defined radio reception and
experimenting based on the rtl2830 chip with the beaglebone black?

Thank you very much in advance for any help!
Best regards,

If you try searching this list, I believe you will find a project where the
person used an rtl-sdr and a 7" touch screen with the BBB to build a
spectrum alanyzer.

Hi William,

Thanks for your help

yes, I know. As you wrote it is a spectrum analyzer.
"Software radio reception" is about radio reception.

If you go to:-


you will find all the low level drivers. You might also try sdr-j.tk who
have a spectrum analyser, an fm receiver, and a DAB receiver.

sdr-j uses the osmocom driver, as I believe does gnuradio.
