iSDR is a software defined radio application designed for experimenters, shortwave listeners, and amateur radio enthusiasts looking for a truly portable software-defined radio receiver.
Note: receiving live on-air signals will require purchasing or constructing a "quadrature sampling detector (QSD)" and connecting it between an antenna and the microphone input jack. Without the QSD device iSDR will play an internal audio file recording of actual radio signals. Please see the support web site for more information.
iSDR is not a streaming audio application. It is designed to let the listener experience actual on-air radio reception of signals received using a simple wire antenna! iSDR can also play an internal audio file so that everyone can experience the thrill of software defined shortwave reception, even without a QSD accessory attached.
iSDR works best on iPhone 3Gs, iPod touch 3rd Gen., iPad and later generation products. NOT RECOMMENDED for iPhone 3G or iPod touch 2G.
