Thanks Tom.

So what can the USRP or should I say GNURAdio "capture" as a chunk of RF and what is the "bandwidth" that it can decode ?

I am also looking at the FUNCubeDongle, but it is only 96 khz wide ?

The standard hardware we have for what you are after is the USRP,
probably with a WBX daughterboard (50 MHz - 2.2 GHz). Look at
www.ettus.com for the range of hardware they sell.

As for the OS, you should be fine with OpenSUSE or OSX. If you're
comfortable in Linux, this is the most likely to work well for you. We
try to work in OSX as well (thanks to Michael Dickens, especially),
but most of the developers work natively in Linux.

I need some advice. I would like to purchase a Software Defined Radio

I would like to be able to do

1. Around 50 MHz to 2.400 GHz
3. I would like to be able to decode AX25 packet (ISS)

I also have another project of decoding Mode S aircraft signals.

I have Windows XP / MAC OS X / Linux OpenSUSE.

What are my decoding options for the SDR ?

I can build packages etc in LINUX

First, GnuRadio is a *framework* for constructing Software-Defined Radio
applications, and as such,
it's not a "plug and play" SDR.

Plenty of folks on here are working on SDR-based *applications*, and there
may be people working on
some of the modes you mention. There's also CGRAN: http://www.cgran.org
which is a site largely
for open-source applications that have been built for GnuRadio. There's
definitely an on-going
Mode S project using Gnu Radio, and some of those developers are on this
mailing list.

You haven't mentioned whether you need Rx capability only, or Rx/Tx.
