SDR - Software Defined Radio is a way to listen to radio transmissions on various frequencies using a slightly modified Digital TV dongle (or a unit specifically designed for use as an SDR) on your computer. Using more advanced technologies, such as GNU Radio Companion, one can even set up a complete pipeline for intercepting and interpreting Morse code and various digital and analog signals.

With the proper SDR setup and a reasonably good antenna, one can easily listen to airport traffic control, radio-amateur transmissions and even satellites on the orbit, including the currently upcoming (launching 30 Jun. 2017) SKCube satellite that led to the creation of Slovakia's very first official space program.
