What *nix distro ? To build an SdR box

OK, so rather than get a Pi ( OK, yes they are cheap) I was thinking of dropping a Linux distro on to one of many old Windows boxes I have kicking around here.


So any recommendations for a *nix distro that is 'ready to go' ?

Re: A Pi and RSP1a ....run via WebGUI ?

Used to live in the in large family farm house, with a separate radio shack in the attic,, dark room, plus sheds too. Now...

Re: A Pi and RSP1a ....run via WebGUI ?

Umm maybe not all lost. All I really want to listen to,( and to get rid of my bulky old manual scanner on the bedside table ) is air band frequencies, so 118.00Mhz up to 136 Mhz. No interest in UHF air, just want the local frequencies at the airport (ATIS Twr etc) Really just to keep track of the lo...

Re: First setup VHF 118-160 MHz

Thanks for the link

Polarization won't be an issue once I get it out of the attic and make it vertical again. ;)


OK, so one issue sorted. Now just need to work out what to do/buy to get a system working

Thanks
