That was a short topic the other night. Although it was about if you logged into an SDR radio on the internet and it not being a radio. I have to take the side that it is and here's why. To suggest that it is not a radio would suggest that the repeater is not a radio as we are essentially simultaneously transmitting to it and being rebroadcasted out remotely. Also remote operation of a base station is not a radio. Which is exactly the same thing we're doing with SDR radios through the internet. I've been checking it out via online and now with this little dongle. It's quite fascinating.
