   Good to hear the IQ is staying. I've did the reading
On the NetSDR and specs look really good. Will just have
To wait and see what the price point comes in at.
   I've been swl/utility dx'ing since 1965 with junk radios to
Receivers that could pay for half a car. Now that I'm retired
I'm looking to giving back to the hobby by letting folks who 
Who are starting out or can't afford a bells and whistle radio
But have an Internet connection the chance to DX with those 
That do. 
  The IQ and Simons Software will make this affordable ( without
Getting rid of my own stash of radios which I can't force myself to part
With).
   Will be looking forward to more on the NetSDR to see how
That goes.

Cheers!

Jim,
 
The SDR-IQ is very popular and isn ot going away anytime soon. The NetSDR will also be affordable and will be available soon. There is a lot of new stuff coming out.

While the new RFSpace SDR's all sound
Very nice I'm sure price wise they will be 
Quite a bit more than the SDR-IQ. I've looked
At the SDR-IP but just hard to justify the cost
Verses benefit ratio for normal dx'ing. Hopefully
The IQ will stay around awhile so I can place then
At remote locations. It will be fun to see what the
New offerings bring in this quickly changing hobby.

Hi Simon,

As an idea for a future effort, for diversity reception, I was wondering if it would be possible to include an option to combine the same received signal in the radio console software from 2 different receivers that are physically separated by large distances. When I say large distances, this means anywhere from half a mile to over 100 miles. In addition to using high speed internet I would suppose that at the user interface there would be a need to have a manually adjustable time domain delay of some sort to provide phase addition of the signals. Maybe an additional routine that performs automatic sync-up could be developed also. What do you think? Alex.
