Elektor SDR Shield 2.0 (1)

Reception and tuning with this versatile new device

Elektor SDR Shield 2.0 (1)
About two years have passed since the launch of the Elektor SDR Shield for creating a shortwave SDR using the Arduino [1]. Plentiful positive feedback and countless experiments have aroused the desire to provide greater connectivity onboard. SDR Shield 2.0 is now the basis for far more than simply a receiver. Applications range from a signal generator through shortwave transmitters all the way to forming a complete shortwave transceiver.First steps with G8JCFSDR As not all readers will be familiar with the original SDR Shield, we ought to describe its beginnings here briefly.
