    55A software defined radio (SDR) is a radio which can modulate and demodulate radio signals through software commands provided by a computer. They typically use a dedicated FPGA to process the radio signals in the digital domain. Many support wide frequency bandwidths allowing them to monitor a wide range of radio transmissions.

    99Software defined radios can be used in any radio application.  The Epiq Sidekiq Z2 used in this testing can tune to any frequency between 40Mhz and 6Ghz.  That covers from FM radio to 5G cellular. Any radio transmission in this frequency can be monitored with this board.
