Sdr Software For Linux Mint

Posted on

CubicSDR v0.2.4 release

The SoapySDR project is an open-source generalized API and runtime library for interfacing with SDR devices. With SoapySDR, you can instantiate, configure, and stream with an SDR device in a variety of environments.

  • Natpos is a new Linux based SDR program similar in operation and features to other programs like GQRX, HDSDR and SDR#. At the moment Natpos only works with RTL-SDR receivers as it runs via the rtltcp interface. The software demodulates the standard AM/FM/SSB signals and has a frequency scanner that automatically tunes to the strongest signal.
  • Tsl-sdr (Linux) (Free) (Related Post) 'The Standard Library' is a set of tools and demodulators for software defined radio like the RTL-SDR. The main program is MultiFM which allows you to monitor multiple FM channels at once. Tsl-sdr also comes with a pager decoder. Dumpvdl2 (Linux/Windows) (Free) (Related Post) - VDL2 Decoder.
  • Linux software: rtl-sdr package in Mint, contains rtlfm utility (documented at link) FUNcube Pro+ Designed to work with the FUNcube satellite — an AMSAT-UK project (AO-73). SDRPlay HackRF One Transmits as well as receives. Airspy Comes with Linux software for multiple platforms, including Raspberry Pi. Servers located worldwide.
  • Testing software (Spectrum. Analyzer, Oscilloscope Etc,) Resources and Links. (large list of software) (Some applications are Pay-to-Play. (mostly information and links to software repositories) internet search engine. Software mentioned on the net. XCWCP (GUI interface) Morse.

CubicSDR version 0.1.3-beta has been released, with significant new features and improvements. Forsoftware defined radio listeners familiar with GQRX and GNU Radio, it is worthwhile to look at this newinterface. New listeners with RTL-SDR hardware will find CubicSDR intuitive, easy to use, and offeringadvanced features. This article gives instructions and code for installing CubicSDR on a 64 bit Linuxoperating system such as Debian, Ubuntu, or Linux Mint.

Of note, CubicSDR has the ability to monitor multiple frequencies (within the ADC bandwidth)simultaneously, with independent mode, squelch, and bandwidth adjustments. The webmaster verymuch enjoyed listening to the two ground control frequencies plus clearance delivery at the localairport - all seamlessly and at the same time! Such a capability is great for weather satelliteand military satellite listening, where the action is sometimes found on a handful of frequenciesat once.

Direct sampling suport for RTL-SDRs is supported and directly accessible through the settings menu.Simply select the I or Q ADC and couple the dongle to an antenna designed for the desired frequencyrange. Broadcast stations are easy to monitor in direct sampling mode. Weak signals may require the useof a preamplifier and or filters to reject intererence from nearby broadcast stations. For example, thewebmaster found 30 meter amateur band listening is fairly easy, but annoying junk from a local multi-kilowattmediumwave plagues other bands. One shouldn't need preamplification on LF/MF/HF bands unless the antenna issmall or not in an ideal location.
#Advert: ASUS monitors are quality tech for your quality visuals.

Tuning in CubicSDR can be accomplished several ways. One can pull up a window and enter the frequency,use the mouse wheel, or click digits on the frequency display. Ditto for setting filter bandwidths, oscillatoroffsets, and the inherent frequency offset due to clock inaccuracy in the radio hardware.

Cubic SDR tuned an FM Broadcast Station.

Installing CubicSDR on a Debian, Linux Mint, or Ubuntu System

First, know that CubicSDR is now included in Skywave Linux, a live Linuxsystem (based on Ubuntu) which can be run from a USB stick or installed on the hard drive. For HPSDR users, QTRadio is installedand there is also browser support for those nice WebSDR sites.

CubicSDR can be installed in about fifteen to twenty minutes on computers of modest performance connectedto modest broadband service. A quad core machine with 10 megabit internet can probably do all of the workin ten minutes or less. Most components can be found in the Debian or Ubuntu repositories, but Liquid DSPand CubicSDR must be downloaded as source from Github, then compiled and installed.

Here is a simple script which will download, compile, and install what is needed to run CubicSDR:

If using a 32 bit system, adjust the script as needed. Copy and paste the script into a text editor.Save it as Make it executable, and run it as rootwith the shell command:

CubicSDR can be run now by clicking on the CubicSDR icon in the system's 'Internet'or 'Ham Radio' menu. Using the command '/opt/CubicSDR/CubicSDR' as a normal user works too!

In comparison to its closest peer on Linux, GQRX, many listeners will prefer the ease ofuse offered by CubicSDR. The ability to monitor multiple frequencies at once gives it an edgeover GQRX, though advanced listeners may prefer GQRX's more extensive settings and tweakability.All in all, CubicSDR is quite a slick frontend for RTL-SDR hardware and my preferred wayto keep tabs on the aviation, weather satellite, and FM broadcast bands.
