To better facilitate SDR learning, Paul Clark has co-written a series of books, entitled Field Expedient SDR. This series explains how to use gnuradio – the most powerful SDR software available – while simultaneously learning foundational radio concepts.
We don’t just throw a bunch of dry explanations at you. You’ll actually get your hands dirty (metaphorically… unless you have a really dirty keyboard) with a host of gnuradio projects – each one allowing you to work with modulators, gain stages, filters and more. We believe this active learning will turn on a lot more lightbulbs than the dry textbook approach.
If you’d like some help ramping up your SDR education, we also provide an array of SDR training courses full of hands-on exercises and additional challenges not found in the books.
