    3 A software defined radio (SDR) is a radio which can modulate and demodulate radio signals through software commands provided by a computer.  
     3A 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.

    7 Software 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 a lot of air, below FM radio to above standard Wi-Fi signals can be analyzed with this hardware.
