I'm pretty sure GNUradio is the way I want to go then.  You, and
others on this list-thread, seem to suggest the sr40 can indeed be
used with GNUradio, iff you have a decent sound card.  ... am I
reading that right?

I'm just trying to get my feet wet on the subject, so the $8 - $50
pricetag is easier to swallow than $700-$1400.  I'm assuming there's a
huge amount of limitations with the sr40 over the USRP, but it can be
used successfully.  That's interesting.

Everything about the sr40 seems "crude" but it's interesting to note
that I wouldn't even have to start from scratch.
