I've seen the postings about people buying the RadioBerry made by HamRadioShop. This the dark-ish (purple?) board with the CL016 fpga. Instead of buying that one I bought an Aursinc one also off AliExpress (link below) but they may be available on other sites. This one is green and has a CL025 fpga. I bought it mostly because I'm thinking of playing around with this and felt that the larger fpga would give more "room" for experimenting.
It arrived last Fri. Ordered Aug 21 and arrived in Canada Sept 1 so not bad shipping time. After searching for my lone RPi4 and a few false starts in installing the various software pieces (it helps if you read *and* follow the directions) I managed to get it working.
My first concern was that it would have a CL016 fpga but it loads the CL025 rbf and works so it appears to be as advertised. At first I thought it a bit deaf but when I compare it head to head with an HL2 it seems to be about the same.
Now my question: one of the reasons that I thought it was deaf was because there was no indication of overload with the Rx gain set fairly high. Is this expected?
