Hi Eric

Per, you suggestion, I am looking at USRP and deciding what equipment to
get.

It seems FM falls in the range of TVRX daughterboard. However it seems
to
require antenna and there is no antenna listed for this range. Will I
just
be able to plug in a TV antenna for it? Is there an FM receiver code
that
will work if I get Basic RX receiver.

Thanks
Inderaj

Hi Eric

Thanks, I am looking at it now, but I don’t have a USRP and this seems
to

require it (same with apps/hf_radio)

I also looked at your article on step by step FM and want to put
together

The Basic Rx board is not what you want for this case. Get the TV RX.

Just pick up a FM dipole antenna (the flexible wire kind) at Radio
Shack or drug store, etc. You’ll also need a 75-ohm-to-300-ohm TV
matching transformer to connect the FM dipole to the F-connector (R/S
15-1253C). Total cost of both items is about $5.
