I havent used these boards so I havent looked at the RF components etc to answer your second question but my understanding of the burn-db-eeprom program is that it just updates the frequencies, gain etc that the daughterboard reports it can handle when the appropriate function is called.

There should be no problems with (forcing) any (i found at one for the rfx1800 and rfx900) eeprom data file onto any board. The program just rewrites the EEPROMS "flash drive" with the data in the file via an I2C bus.

Performance will be terrible (or gnuradio wont let you set appropriate values) if the eeprom isnt flashed correctly but theres no reason you can just re-flash the EEPROM.

I was looking at the opnbts wiki and found out that I can
convert the RFX1800 to RFX900 using

burn-db-eeprom -A --force -t rfx900

I just wanted to make sure that conversion is safe and
can be reversed before I do anything stupid.
So is there anything like

burn-db-eeprom -A --force -t rfx1800

as well?

Also, I suppose once this is done, there is no need for removing the ISM filter, since the RFX1800 does not have it.
Is that right?


PS: there is a message


ddescribing how to convert rfx900 to rfx1800 and back, but i
currently have an rfx1800 so this does not answer my question.
