Projects: RTL2832 Software Defined Radio and FM Stereo Transmitter from Adafruit

I just purchased a few items from Adafruit including an RTL2832 Software Defined Radio USB Stick and a Stereo FM Transmitter with RDS breakout board.  Not sure what I’m going to do with the FM Transmitter but I think it will be something like the FM Transmitter that my friend Mike Yancey KM5Z made a few years ago.  The Software Defined Radio stick will probably come with me on my travels so I can sniff the airwaves while bored in my hotel room.  Lady Ada has a good tutorial for the SDR and it looks like a lot of fun — will apparently pick up signals from 24 MHz to 1.8 GHz and supports narrow and wide FM, AM, sideband, and CW.  She also has a tutorial for the FM transmitter.  I’ll make some postings to the blog when I start playing with these things.
