An Intro To Software Defined Radio

In this workshop, Alex will show you how to unlock the world of radio communications. You’ll learn how to use a technology called software-defined radio (SDR), with which you can explore the electromagnetic spectrum using nothing but a $30 kit and your computer. After getting set up with your SDR kit, Alex will also demonstrate various signals you can receive all over the world while revealing some of the underlying principles of radio communications. At the end of this workshop, you’ll have the tools necessary to further your exploration of radio technologies and even use wireless communications in your next project.
