The team is about to release software that provides the foundation for general radio astronomy tasks support; it currently focuses on collecting total power via dual channel RSSI measurement.   Versions for Linux, macOS and Windows will be available and require no installation with the exception of Windows user selecting a USB driver.   We will post the software in the next few days, including a users' guide.

Radio Astronomy Highlights

Two recent radio astronomy applications using RASDR4 / LimeSDR are David Lonard's use of LimeSDR for interferometry @ 1420.4 MHz using a Python and GPU processing; and the second is  a simple experiment conducted by members of the RASDR4 team and others during the eclipse.   Part of the experiment was unsuccessful, and we are still analyzing 432MHz total power (RSSI) data collected from a YAGI antenna.  A separate posting will describe new software we are about to release for MIMO RSSI collection.
