I'm writing this post while listening to WebSDR 20m, 40m, and 80m. It is a web based application sponsored by Radio Club ETGD PI4THT, Faculty for Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, and Computer Science at the University of Twente, the Netherlands. The future of ham radio is software defined radio (SDR). I said it. SDR is the next wave and it will eventually replace the transceiver. I'm convinced, absolutely, through and through. The next evolution will include web based applications as well. Perhaps including mobile devices connecting to one's SDR at home. The Internet is moving toward a service based, open sourced cloud and it is transforming. SDR technology is maturing and who knows what the world of ham radio will look like three years hence. Or even less.
