In this video I show how to install custom versions of gr-osmosdr and gqrx on Ubuntu Linux, which allows us to receive 124MHz bandwidth at the same time.

This is achieved by a few HDL accelerators in BladeRF, which allows it to calibrate and tune the underlying RF front-end several thousand times per second.

When these tasks are performed quickly, the BladeRF can digitize and stitch together up to 200MHz of additional bandwidth, which is a pretty impressive feat.

Topics covered:
– Installing Ubuntu
– Installing BladeRF-cli on Ubuntu
– Using apt-get on Ubuntu to get gr-osmosdr and gqrx
– Compiling custom versions of gr-osmosdr and gqrx
