Description

rx_fm, rx_power, and rx_sdr tools for receiving data from SDRs, based on rtl_fm, rtl_power, and rtl_sdr from librtlsdr, but using the SoapySDR vendor-neutral SDR support library instead, intended to support a wider range of devices than RTL-SDR

Installation

Install SoapySDR, then run:

cmake .
make

Tools included

After building, these binaries should then be available at the root directory:

  • rx_fm
    (based on
    rtl_fm
    ): demodulator for FM and other modes, see rtl_fm guide
  • rx_power
    (based on
    rtl_power
    ): FFT logger, see rtl_power
  • rx_sdr
    (based on

Not included

Tools from librtlsdr not included in this repository:

  • rtl_eeprom
    ,
    rtl_test
    ,
    rtl_ir
    : specific to RTL-SDR devices
  • rtl_tcp

Device support

Currently tested with an RTL-SDR dongle, a HackRF One, and bladeRF x40, primarily using

rx_fm
, but supporting all devices supported by SoapySDR is the goal. Experimental, use at your own risk, but bug reports and patches are welcome.
