Over on YouTube channel “Privacy & Tech Tips” has uploaded a video demonstrating how it’s possible to run GQRX with an RTL-SDR on a PinePhone. In the video the presenter shows how to set up the screen so that GQRX is fully visible, demonstrates GQRX running, and then goes on to show exactly how to install the RTL-SDR drivers on the PinePhone.

The PinePhone is an open source smart phone that can run a full Linux distribution. A PinePhone sells for US$149.99 or $199.99 for a higher end version with more RAM and storage.
