This is opened to ALL HAMS (members and non members) and NON-HAMS, so come on down to the Camden County Emergency Management Office located at 12 VFW Rd, Camdenton MO.

Last week (May 19th) Larry Cicchinelli (K3PTO) presented an excellent class on Software Defined Radios. For those that missed it he was gracious enough to allow links to the information here on the web site.

Here are the links from Larry’s presentation:

For the first video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ncxyycmSeWU<https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ncxyycmSeWU> The links for parts two and three can be found on this site.

The software for the SDR I am getting : https://airspy.com/download/ <https://airspy.com/download/> This software can be run without any hardware.  I allows you to select from quite a few sites around the world which have their SDRs available on the ‘net.

Each video presents SDR from a slightly different perspective.  I found each of them to be helpful.
