I have been churnin through a number of old posts here about different SDR options. The last best opinion I got from Frank/GFZ was that the QS1R from Phil Covington looks like the best available to date. It had looked like Phil had trailed off in his effort with the QS1R, but I see a recent update to his blog about availability, so I guess this is encouraging. But I suppose I should start with a SoftRock SDR like everyone else seems to have done.

I read somewhere in this searching someone made mention of a good article that Steve/HUZ posted about SDR, which I can't seem to find. Does anyone know the URL of this article?

I have the link at home but my commute this week is 3000 miles.
Softrock on an IF is a great place to start cheap and learn how to use the software.
Hold off a while longer on spending money. HPSDR Hermes is almost done. The PC board is in redesign to eliminate some ground loops that caused a few RX spurs.
This is the same performance as the QSR1 but it is a transceiver that makes 1/2 watt.
Steve's article is very good.

You also have the Flex 1500 QRP HF+ 6 meter software defined transceiver for less then $650.
