I agree - The LimeSDR is being embraced by the Amateur Radio community in a big way. I know of other Hams here in Cedar Rapids, Iowa that are certainly interested in HF but a pretty large contingent using it for V/UHF with the other modes (SSB/CW) with their Limes. My Beta Lime went to a V/UHF conference in Minnesota last October and was the darling of that show (received a lot of interest by the attendees). So getting transmit working for the Lime is a big deal now - we've had receive forever, so ANY app that allows operation in the other modes and use voice/data is going to get A LOT of use by the Hams on their boards until the apps (SDRConsole, HDSDR) support it.
I'm continuing to pound my head agaist PiHPSDR in hopes that it may be the first app to use the Lime for both transmit and receive. I've had compiler issues that I'm trying to resolve with Mike and Alex on that thread (I saw your entry there, so you know about the PiHPSDR thread on the forum). Mike has it working in receive, but I haven't heard if transmit works yet, and John (G0ORX) is currently in a skiing trip this week and won't be back on it for another 2 weeks. So we're all trying to 'roll our own' on that app to get transmit running. THAT would be groundbreaking until SDRConsole and HDSDR are more mature.
