When I became interested in the Flex 6300 a couple of years ago, I knew nothing about the FPGA concept. (And as I am not an Engineer or a Computer Science major). I still know little. That said, I went in search of a tutorial that would serve as an introduction to the FPGA and an explanation as to why it has opened up this new world in Ham radio. I’m an “appliance operator. I never understood all of the Mixers/Oscillators/Roofing filters that make up the Super-Heterodyne architecture. But hey! I could read a block diagram! There are many videos out there. No one video is perfect for the Ham Op, but I found this one very useful. Maybe you will too? Try it!

This is my minimum set up for watching news and scanning web news subscriptions. It’s basically just 3 iPads/iphone 6+ and a 55′ Flat Screen DVR with RF headphones.
