SDR for iOS NZ0I on 4/6/12


Software-defined radio arrived in Apple's App Store in mid 2010 with the release of iSDR: an app compatible with the Apple iPhone®, iPod touch® and iPad™. Since that time iSDR has evolved into a full-featured software defined radio application. Designed for experimenters, shortwave listeners, and amateur radio enthusiasts looking for a truly portable software-defined radio receiver.

With the introduction of Elecraft's KX3 transceiver, and other DSP radio products, hams are finding that iSDR can transform their iPhone, iPod or iPad into a portable yet capable panadapter. Ideal for Field Day! Watch WD9E's YouTube video on How To Connect Elecraft KX3 To iPad to use with iSDR:

iSDR is capable of receiving live on-air signals when used with a "quadrature sampling detector (QSD)" RF front end device connected between an antenna and an Apple device's microphone input jack. iSDR also supports downloading your own on-air signal recordings for playback - not just a recorded conversation, but a tunable 44-kHz slice of on-air amateur radio history that you can carry in your pocket! Recording lengths are limited only by the memory available on your Apple device. iSDR is the only pocket-portable SDR solution, supports the most popular voice modulation modes, and sports features previously found only in ham shacks with powerful PCs.

As always, iSDR is available free of charge, and contains no advertising. Visit the iSDR support web site to learn more about iSDR: The app can be downloaded from the App Store:
