G40 has been tested with variety of SDR software however PowerSDR is probably the most suitable for monoband transceiver. NOTE: some version of Power SDR (for example the one you have downloaded to 'test drive' our sound samples is RECEIVE ONLY version (when used with third-party hardware). For RX/TX version download PowerSDR SR40 (approx. 2MB).

Install SR40. When prompted for hardware select "Rocky" and "unsupported sound card" (unless your card is listed and available in option menu)

Run PowerSDR SR40.
