The R2T2 is a complete SDR transceiver which by its construction to date
reflects the art and through his extensive peripherals and modular structure also
more likely to be in the future nothing to be desired.
The R2T2 is used inter alia as WebSDR of the German Amateur Radio Club.
Spread over 15 locations in Germany are located in the future each one R2T2
provide the per station full up to eight amateur radio receiver in the Internet.
In a later expansion, these devices can also act as transceiver for transmitting
be used as a transmission mode currently not only legal but
also operating and antenna Technical occur, need to be addressed.
Currently, the first batch of R2T2 in production.
As SDR server and SDR-GUI “QTRadio” is used.
The software version of R2T2 is also already progressed so far
that simultaneously all 8 DSP server available in real time over the network
transceiver run stable.
At a few “quirks” we still need to hone, (zt by QTRadio conditionally)
and specifically the access portal for the DARC-members has yet to be created.
This either from the operating Linux runs stable on the R2T2 and the periphery of R2T2
is fully supported, so that to selectively direct an HDMI monitor
can connect a USB keyboard and mouse.
