Today it was brought to my attention that gqrx works well with the Red Pitaya board running the SDR transceiver code by Pavel Demin. Indeed, looking through the gr-osmosdr commit logs, I could see support was added in December 2015, just around the same time I was packaging gr-osmosdr.
Meteor scatter reception with RTL-SDR and Gqrx
Meteor scatter, or meteor burst communications, is a challenging field within amateur radio communication, where the operators use the ionized trails of meteors for reflection of radio waves.
George Smart, M1GEO, has posted a very nice write-up on his website describing the setup that he uses for meteor scatter reception. The setup uses an RTL-SDR dongle with Gqrx as receiver, and WSJT or MSHV for decoding.
