Yes. Very much like websdr. Except remove the real RF. Simulate noise.
Put internet users into the bandscope. It would literally be an online
I know, its a hard sell for scientific types. But, it has value…
in strange places. For instance: [through some online-broadcast forums]
know of war museum that has implemented in in-exhibit radio stream. It
includes period-correct transmitters/receivers. They modulate the whole
thing with a digitized playout server. How amazing would it be to put
servers playout into a virtual spectrum and allow web visitors to tune
dial in search of propaganda, radio from the front-lines, and
Virtual walkie-talkie with smart-phones?
For me, radio lost its appeal when analog dials disappeared. But when I
stumbled upon websdr, and these rtl devices, I went bonkers for it
I love the hum/hiss/crackles/pops and I love an analog tuner (i know i
know). Add pirate radio, regular folk talking, and the promise of an
occasional world-wide contact, and I’ll put my money into a hardware
in a heartbeat (raspberry pi with an astatic D104 microphone and a
the bounces when people talk? i’ll take two).
I had wanted to tackled the idea myself, but its above my meager
abilities. And to be honest, i’m not sure how well it would run with
1mb bandwidth and several thousand wannabe truckers.
But thanks for entertaining the thought.
