Our friends at RTL-SDR.com are reporting on a new SDR based on the RTL2832u. “It is called the “Lantern” and is being developed for the Outernet project. The Outernet project aims to be a “library in the sky” satellite based service that will provide free access to daily downloads of data such as books, news, videos and other information. It’s goal is to provide people who may not have easy physical or uncensored access to the internet an easy way to access daily information.”
