I am curious if anyone has an ideas of other things that we can use L band gear for? Are there other data streams that are fun to play with? I just hate to have this stuff sitting here not doing anything
There is already such a thread on the forum. Take a look here: Re-purposing DreamCatcher and SDRx boards:
I use my Dreamcatcher as a Network SDR for receiving VHF and UHF at the moment.
If an RTL-SDR had enough bandwidth, you could use it as a 23cm Amateur radio Analog TV receiver.
