AirSpy One + Odroid XU4 + Linux kernel 5


Michał Frątczak
 

Maybe everybody knows this already, but I did not !
So in the past if you wanted to use AirSpyOne with OdroidXU4, you needed to stick to kernel 3.x (for example armbian), because newer kernels could not keep up with 10 MSPS over USB.

Today I installed latest Ubuntu 20.04 and it seems things improved !
