Hands on: Software Defined Radios at your fingertips on the web
Don’t have a SDR of your own? Why not play with someone elses SDR over the Internet?
After playing with a few of these I get the idea that … why should I buy hardware if I can use these on-demand? Have you heard of using OPM (Other People’s Money)? How about OPR? – Using Other People’s Radios. The audio is clear, the interface is very easy to use. Never listened to Ham Radio? – here is your chance.
With the popularity of “the cloud” maybe this should be called “SDR in the Cloud” or “SDR Cloud Services”
