We present software defined radio implementations of various geophysical instruments, such as an ionosonde, a broad band riometer, passive radar, and a beacon satellite ionospheric tomography receiver. We also discuss our experiences with using off-the-shelf software defined radio hardware as digital receivers for high power large aperture radars and ionospheric heaters.
