It'll receive Wx sats with the final IF at 50kHz width, FM
demodulation. Some modes/software packages are more configurable than
others. Using HDSDR here.
Be aware that there are several versions of the FCD. The newest are
the best, by miles.
Use these with transmitters at your own risk. I killed one of my two,
this morning, this way, I think. Most of the time
I was using 5W from a handie scratchie. YMMV!
SDR is the wave of the future. Being able to click anywhere in the
passband of the receiver and then having Satpc32 go there while
driving the transmitter rocks. The only better feature is that finding
elusive signals became way easier.
There's a stocking Winradio dealer less than an hour from me. Bad
news: $800 plus tax.
