SDR Soundcard Tester
The key to using a soundcard successfully in digital signal processing or digital radio applications lies principally in the characteristics of the soundcard itself. This applies in particular to SDR (software defined radio) programs that turn your PC into a top-class AM/SSB/CW receiver, assuming your soundcard cooperates. If you want to experiment with SDR and avoid a lot of frustration, it is worth checking first whether the PC soundcard you plan to use is suitable.
