I have been doing quite a bit of research on this lately.
i have used my pi3 with rtl_tcp with rtlsdr devices and it worked pretty good with gqrx.
been messing around with limesdr-mini in the pi3 and its not even easy to get going.
people have said that the pi3 is better at being a soapysdr remote with fedora 64bit as it also was created with armv8 instruction where most other distros are 32bit and backward compatible to the pi which is armv6
one of the problems is it still really limits the samplerate you can put over wifi from the pi3 even if all is working great.
So…i been looking at a ton of SBC’s and reading and reading and watching youtube.
then it dawned on my i can go buy almost any used phone off ebay with snapdragon 800 cpu and usually darn good gpu, plenty of ram (2GB minimum) and sometimes 3 or 4GB (my v30+ had 4GB), USB 3.0 and dual band wifi 2.4/5.0ghz, external storage (sdcard).
anyhow since SoapySDR Server (remote) is not avail in play store or no app offically released like sdrangel then we cant get it yet (hope this really changes soon)
i would 100% be willing to pay for a working sdr app that i can run on the android phone and screen cast to a monitor and use bt m/k.
would be willing to pay for either app (but not avail yet)
ok so it looks like im back to SBC
which one can stream the limesdr data to a client machine running the actual sdr app?
i know we need usb 3.0 and probably 5ghz (dont want the wifi to interfere with the lime mini 3.5GHz cap)
probably need 2GB ram at least
that leave really only a few boards
anybody recommend one for just receiving the msps i want?
i sometimes set my samplerate to 65msps (like with cubicsdr) but thats on my laptop.
im also almost ready to take the plunge and do the “80Mhz bandwidth spectrogram on LimeSDR-mini” 80mhz bandwidth mod.
anyhow what i guess im saying is what SBC will run SoapySDR Server (remote) the best in a headless configuration.
i dont want to have to buy any audio boards. i read one of them had to add an audio board.
when you are headless i dont think you can use the hdmi digital audio so it has to be another onboard audio.
thanks and sorry took so long to say it
