Packages and Binaries:
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.
How to install:
sudo apt install gqrx-sdr
Software Defined Radio GUI application

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.
