Friedrichshafen international amateur radio exhibition

After having to miss out last year, this year I've made it to the biggest Ham event in Europe.
As always Friedrichshaven was packed with Radio Amateurs, some even traveled from the most exotic places in the world.

It was nice to see the Icom IC7610 in real live, the SDR successor version of the IC7600.
Icom really made a quantum leap ahead of the competition by making the choice to start building its rigs based on sdr technology.

An Open Source SDR radio from 70Mhz to 6 GHz ...

The amazing SDR projects keep popping up!

How about this one: "The FreeSRP"

Receive and Transmit at the Same Time, yes full-duplex.. ( with a maximum output power of 50 mW @ 2.4 GHz)

This FPGA based board has a USB 3.0 port, can be used with GNU-radio under Ubuntu Linux and has a bandwidth of 61.44 MHz

It's a bit more expensive than the "HACK-RF ONE" board from one of my earlier posts, however the Hack-RF is a half-duplex SDR,
and this FreeSRP is using the powerfull Xilinx Artix 7 FPGA whereas the Hack-RF One board is using a CPLD.
