Hi all

I am starting to work in the SDR area and planning to start out by
building myself a GNU Radio platform to play with...  Hopefully in 
the long term I will be able to contribute to the project and add to 
the momentum.  

I've got a pretty good grasp on how to put something together..   I'm
planning on using the Microtune tuner and I have a few novice questions.

First of all, how do I get one of these units?  Do I contact Microtune
directly or do they sell small quantities through a distributor network?
Is there someone at Microtune that knows what the GNU Radio project is and
may streamline the process?  

Secondly, I've seen some of the discussion regarding the Microtune eval
board...  Has anyone built their own adaptor board?  I'm not adverse to 
trying to roll my own on a piece of perf- or copper-clad board if the 
consensus is that the Microtune board is a waste of $500.  

Any other tips for putting one of these boxes together?

Thanks in advance,
