By the way, the Pluto ships by default with a frequency range of 325 - 3800 MHz, but some or possibly all can be upgraded to a range of 70 - 6000 MHz. The effective tuning accuracy out of the box is sub 1 Hz with a few ppm accuracy. Unfortunately the PlutoSDR does not have an external reference feature, but some handy soldering could replace the reference TCXO...
I use the B200mini which uses the same Analog Devices 936x family transceiver chip as the core of my microwave and VHF/UHF radio work. I tend to use a bandwidth of about 1 MHz and then use DSP to handle pulling individual signals out of the passband. I'd be very happy to talk with anyone interested in using an SDR like this as part of their setup. My daily work is building and programming these radios. The Pluto, LimeSDR, USRPs, and other similar radios are just going to grow more and more common and it's definitely a technology we should make more use of.
Hi Chris,I had a chance to talk with Analog Devices at GNU Radio Conference last month where they were, among many things, showing off the PlutoSDR. It is a simple but effective transceiver. Anyone using it should add external band pass filters to improve its performance.
