Software Defined Radios

Software Defined Radios (SDRs) are the most innovative type of shortwave radios on the market today. As the name implies, these radios are actually a hardware accessory you attach to your personal computer. Most have multi-platform controllers and give you performance and flexibility you simply can’t get out of a comparably priced portable or tabletop radio.

The following list also contains radios that are PC controlled. Though they look similar to an SDR, PC controlled radios are simply radios that rely on a personal computer for the user interface and some performance enhancements.

Below, you will find a list of all SDRs and PC controlled radios categorized by manufacturer. Click on the radio name and model to view details.
