gqrx-sdr

Gqrx works with hardware supported by gr-osmosdr, including Funcube Dongle, RTL-SDR, Airspy, HackRF, BladeRF, RFSpace, USRP and SoapySDR.

Gqrx can operate as an AM/FM/SSB receiver with audio output or as an FFT-only instrument. The built-in Gqrx AFSK1200 decoder can decode and display AX.25 packets. There are also various hooks for interacting with external applications using network sockets.

Wideband FM mode has mono, stereo, and RDS (Radio Data System) modes. Displays FFT plot and spectrum waterfall.

It is powered by GNU Radio and the Qt GUI toolkit.

NAME
       gqrx - Software Defined Radio GUI application

DESCRIPTION
       Gqrx  is  a software defined radio (SDR) receiver implemented using GNU
       Radio and the Qt GUI toolkit. It works with hardware supported  by  gr-
       osmosdr,  including  Funcube  Dongle, RTL-SDR, Airspy, HackRF, BladeRF,
       RFSpace, USRP and SoapySDR.

       Gqrx can operate as an AM/FM/SSB receiver with audio output  or  as  an
       FFT-only  instrument. There are also various hooks for interacting with
       external applications using network sockets.

       It is strongly recommended to run the volk_profile utility before  run-
       ning gqrx. This will detect and enable processor-specific optimisations
       and will in many cases give a significant performance boost.

       The first time you start gqrx it will open a device configuration  dia-
       log.   Supported devices that are connected to the computer are discov-
       ered automatically and you can select any  of  them  in  the  drop-down
       list.

       If  you  don't see your device listed in the drop-down list it could be
       because:

       o      The driver has not been included in a binary distribution

       o      The udev rule has not been properly configured

       o      Linux kernel driver is blocking access to the device

       You can test your device using device specific tools, such as rtl_test,
       airspy_rx, hackrf_transfer, qthid, etc.

       Gqrx  supports multiple configurations and sessions if you have several
       devices or if you want to use the same device under different  configu-
       rations. You can load a configuration from the GUI or using the -c com-
       mand line argument.
