Voice/Text via Radio/VOIP -- QRadioLink

Looks to have some promise. Just came across this one in my wanderings.

Haven’t tried it but it should work with LimeSDR via osmosdr->SoapySDR (or something like that).

Add on to do list :smiley:

You might get to it before I do. I’m not too interested in Tx so it’ll be a long time before I spend time on this. Please share if you find time to look at that.

I know the guy behind this. I haven’t had the chance to test it with my LimeSDR yet, but he believes it should work.

Some chance to try tonight but no luck…

Hello Djani,

The application is in incubation phase, so currently no binary packages exist.
Your error was due to missing necessary development tools for the Qt GUI components.
Should you wish to join the development team in a developer or tester capacity, I can recommend the following getting started resources:

Automated nightly builds will be provided once milestone 0.5 is reached. Packages for Debian x86, x86-64 and armhf architectures will be available. Currently only voice codecs Opus and Codec2 are supported. In the future that will change, introducing full support for low-latency GSM full rate codec.

Resources are currently focused on the following areas:

  • video streaming with audio side channel (x264)
  • TCP/IP encapsulation
  • high bitrate data modems with channel coding
  • full duplex support

No tests have been done so far with the LimeSDR boards as we don’t own them. Please share any test results of your own.

Best regards,


Thank you Adrian for explanation and update.
I may be in position to run some testing by the end of October.
Also by that time I can use two LimeSDR units for testing.
Kind Regards

Debian Stretch (stable) amd64 packages are now available via Travis CI automated builds.
Please see http://qradiolink.org for details.
Note video and packet radio TNC support is still experimental.
Stay tuned for other architectures/OS variants.

Best regards,
