Online Controllable Short Wave Radio

Taken from the website: ’On this page you can listen to and control a short-wave receiver located at the amateur radio club ETGD at the University of Twente. In contrast to other web-controlled receivers, this receiver can be tuned by multiple users simultaneously, thanks to the use of Software-Defined Radio.’’

This doesn’t mean that you listen to others tuning the radio. You have free control over what you want to tune and listen to. Other than tuning the radio yourself, there’s also a chat room where people post stations that are opperating/audible to the antenna (remember that you are listening to the reception of a physical short-wave radio and not an internet radio).

There is also the function to record the audio output and download it as a 16bit Wav file.

This little board is the brains of the system. It samples the whole radio spectrum and sends it to a PC, which is then where you listen to your radio station from.
