Using off the shelf wireless routers as SDR transceivers

Recommended Posts

I....don't get it.

Is the point of this to do ethernet via the HAM frequencies, or to receive/send radio data using your network adapter?

As far as how it is done I couldn't tell you. But basically they take off the shelves Atheros based routers modify the firmware and resignal them to other frequencies for secure, cost effective communications.

If you have a HAM license you can transmit at much higher levels and achive long distance links. However it is not ok to send secure (encrypted) traffic on HAM frequencies. I wouldn't call this SDR because its just programming it to be out of band. If you could get the IQ samples and use software to change modulation etc then it could make things more interesting.
