Gnuradio with Alinco DJ-X11

Hello,

I would like to start with gnuradio since I own a wideband receiver
that is capable of SDR. The device is called Alinco DJ-X11 and you can
find its specs here: http://www.alinco.com/Products/DJ-X11/
I think the most important fact is that it outputs I/Q-Data via the
earphone-jack which is connected to the line-in port of my soundcard.

Currently, I use it with quisk (linux sdr software,
Quisk, A Software Defined Radio (SDR) ) and it works really well, but I’d
like to use it with gnuradio. I found a lot of tutorials, but most of
them are for USRP.

Does anyone have a clue how to use my receiver with gnuradio? I could
not find an I/Q block in gnuradio-companion.

Best regards from germany,
Sebastian Opitz

Hi Sebastian,

What do you mean by I/Q block? All blocks that work on complex samples
are practically I/Q blocks, no?

I guess you mean I/Q input block. Since you have connected the radio
to your sound card you want to use the “Audio source” block with two
channels, which will correspond to I and Q.
