Re: Processor architecture, gnuradio

Thanks for the info.
I hadn't got my hopes up for using the rig as an SDR, but I was mostly curious about what software I might be able to run on it, and what other gadgets I might connect to its multitude of ports. Having a bunch of USB attached SDRs and knowing that radios like the Ettus USRP E100 run gnuradio on ARM architecture made me wonder what else could be bolted on to keep the CPU busy when it's not thrashing away on 70cm.
I've been using a Sheevaplug for a number of years running Debian and have been through a fair range of Nokias Linux devices too. I have worked my way through a number of failed SD cards in that time-frame with those devices, but the MTDs used in them have never let me down. I assume the SD card would be accessible enough to replace in case of failure, even if it was too awkward to swap on a regular basis.
It may be time to see if I can get the Sheevaplug to do anything useful with the Funcube Dongle SDR and other gadgets.
Keep up the good work,
