Hello,

I would like to experiment with software-defined radio on FreeBSD. I
installed gnuradio and my understanding is that I need some minimal
hardware, presumably USB dongles. After some search I found several
vendors - RTL-SDR. HackRF, AirSpy, etc. I found
https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/rtl-sdr-on-freebsd-or-hey-cool-i-live-near-an-airport-i-wonder-if-adsb-works.52157/
and it says RTL-SDR is support by FreeBSD.

My father who is a radio engineer asked me to find him such a
hardware. He is a Linux user and my impression is that those devices
are supported on Linux. I found the topic interesting enough to buy
one for me and as a FreeBSD user I want to use it on FreeBSD.

What other recommendations can you give me about such chips? What to
buy, where to buy? I am looking for cheap ones - something up around
$100. Will I need any drivers for FreeBSD?

Regards
rambius
