Hi Group,

The below message appeared at dsp-radio a few days ago.
Among other things there is a new definition of SDR.

(A radio on which something that is subject to regulations
can be changed in software.)

Means that an amateur receiver is not an SDR in Sweden -
we are allowed to listen on all frequencies here:)

In other countries where some frequency bands are prohibited
it becomes different....

The EU (and the FCC's) SDR regulatory lever is associated with the "radios". No radio, no (or almost no) regulation. Whether it is used as a component of a radio system is dependent on the overall HW/SW configuration, which is entirely in the hands of the user.

The present development is a really signal processing toolkit. Yet another reason to change the name of the GNURadio project. How about GNUSignal?
