Those screens have nothing to do with SDR. Those screens shows what looks like is a system running Asterisk PBX software and it shows SIP related messages.

post link to website and cost??
I got the $300 HandHeldSDR, which is SMALLER THAN THE BLADERF, working with the $2000 RangeNetworks
embedded single board computer as you can see from some of the pictures posted, or at the following website.

$300 Windows GSM HandHeldSDR vs $2000 RangeNetworks GSM 5150 SDR
$300 Windows GSM HandHeldSDR vs $2000 RangeNetworks GSM 5150 SDR | Software Radio.US

We're looking to provide a small batch of Quantity 50 @ $300 each of the HandHeldSDR devices through a Kickstarter / IndieGoGo to get the device working with WinRad.

We'd like assistance connecting the Wideband HandHeldSDR with CW Skimmer Listener software:

CWSL is a set of utilities to allow further use of data from SDR receiver (usrp, qs1r) connected to the Skimmer server. This is done through the special dll CWSL_Tee, whitch acts as driver for another SDR receiver. It is inserted between the real driver of SDR receiver and Skimmer server. Data from the SDR receiver going through this library, which is storing it in circular buffers in shared memory of the computer. All other applications running on the same computer can use it from these buffers.

From CSWL, it connects to WinRad:

Winrad is a free amateur radio program conceived that implements many Software Defined Radio (SDR) functions which are needed for weaksignal reception including EME, troposcatter, cloudscatter, and very long distance microwave terrestrial contacts. It also works well for general HF reception. Winrad will accept input from any Windows soundcard, from Virtual Audio Cable, or direct digital input from several SDR receivers which have appropriate drivers written for Winrad in the form of a DLL plus support files.

All recent versions of Winrad run under Windows 2000, XP, Vista and 1.6.1 has been tested on Windows 7 (32 and also 64 bit) which is inline the Windows GSM Software that is known to work with the HandHeldSDR!

jbobbs2001,


Its a Windows GSM (SDR) application that is connected to the wideband HandHeldSDR that DROPS the call into Asterisk.

Your incorrect!

WindowsGSM SDR software working with Asterisk

jbobbs2001,


And as the picture indicates, the MSN Messenger client can SMS message the GSM Mobile Phones that are registered with the wideband HandheldSDR.

We even demonstrated this before the Wireless Innovation Forums Annual event before, guess of ALL the places, Motorola Solutions in March 2014.

Unitrunker,


No plans to offer anything "receive-only", though you * could * use this device to " receive only ".

I prefer having a device that allows me to receive/transmit on as many radio frequencies as possible.

This device is a full transceiver though able to work with both Windows & Linux OS

Didn't you have another SDR that you developed a few years back similar to the USRP1?

This one looks like it's based on some of the same technology at least from an FPGA, DAC/ADC and clocking perspective but with a new RF front end.

It looks very interesting.

None that I developed

This is a upgraded to the USRP1 but now in a HandHeldSDR version smaller than the BladeRF with Windows GSM BTS & Scanner software.
I remembered when I demonstrated this device before the Wireless Innovation Forum hosted @ Motorola Solutions, they were stunned!

But Motorola is more interested in doing the following:

And as far as the $2000 RangeNetworks 5150 SDR that has YET to work for the University, as of 2 days ago, someone else reported the dam thing not working with even the most current versions of OpenBTS:

[Openbts-discuss] newly developed stability issues somehow solved...

Hi,

I am running OBTS 5.0 with a RAD1/SDR1, and during a demonstration I got
more and more stability issues. Calls were not connected, or they broke
after one ring, some where connected, but no audio got through, sometimes
even the transceiver stopped transmitting. My first thought was, well, 50++
users are a bit too much :) But later at the hotel room with my usual test
setup with two phones the issues remained the same, if not even being worse.
OpenBTS / Mailing Lists

We believe once this HandHeldSDR is in more people's hands, more useful applications will come as a result of it
offering the public NON Ettus Research / RangeNetworks GNU Radio compatible hardware!

RangeNetworks REALLY pissed us all off by IGNORING the University, and the $2000 they
refuse to refund!

That University, the Illinois Institute of Technology, is hosting its former Professor next week on
November 10, 2014:

The Birth and Death of the Cell Phone: Chicago Council on Science and Technology is pleased to co-present

Martin Cooper changed the world when he made the first cell phone call 40 years ago, on a two-pound-plus Motorola DynaTAC phone. His first call: to the head of research at Bell Labs, a company that also was attempting to build the first cell phone. It would be over a decade before the first cell phone would be commercially available, but Cooper's call opened the door to true mobility and continues to affect virtually every aspect of our lives.

Martin Cooper holds a B.S. and an M.S. in electrical engineering and an honorary doctorate from Illinois Institute of Technology, on whose Board of Trustees he serves as a life trustee.

Mr. Cooper will be made AWARE of the last 2 years of ZERO support from RangeNetworks who ripped off his University!

DETAILS: Monday, November 10, 3:30 p.m. Lecture, Hermann Hall Ballroom, 3241 South Federal Street. Chicago, IL, 60616, 5 p.m. Reception, Hermann Hall Gallery. Complimentary parking will be available in the A4 (32nd and State Streets) and B5 (32nd and Federal Streets), parking lots.

RSVP no later than November 9, 2014. Please register at

The Birth and Death of the Cell Phone | Chicago Council on Science & Technology

These HandHeldSDRs will be made available but I've been swamped with getting the device to work with TouchScreen Tablets, and other stuff, as well as working towards it being recognized by OpenBTS-UMTS.

Why will it be able to work with OpenBTS-UMTS?

Because RangeNetworks 5150 already was " Talking " to the HandHeldSDR as you can see from the pictures below. I've been busy getting the HandHeldSDR to work with TouchScreen & other devices so please sit tight and YES everyone will be able to obtain this HandHeldSDR!

SDR4ALL Windows Software recognizes the HandHeldSDR

http://softwareradio.us/wp-content/uploads/2014/04/HandHeldSDR.gif

SDR4All Toolbox is a package that intends to help you transform an Universal Software Radio Peripheral, or other SDR Devices, into a plug and play device.

HandHeldSDR It includes a device driver, a component that enables the communication and a server interface and we’ve contacted the Authors to prospectively utilize the source code to expand its capabilities!
