You can also start with an rtl-sdr (nooelec is now selling them, so
supply is easy to come by). As a ham, you're going to hate a lot of the
RF, but it's cheap, works easily with GNU Radio, and you can find many
pre-built examples that use this receiver. It's also receive only.
Still, it's a great and really cheap way to start, and it'll give you
some time to play and develop better concepts about what else you might
need from the hardware.


Thanks, Tom, that's a great, low risk way to start!
