Is there any piece of hardware or software I can use that will allow me to transmit and/or receive radio signals from my laptop? I'd prefer to do it using my existing hardware, like my wifi card, but I'd be okay with buying a special piece of hardware too.
To be clear, I'm not simply looking to pick up and transmit radio or tv signals on my computer. I'm planning on building something a bit more complicated and a lot more flexible which will work over a wider frequency range. For example I would like to be able to monitor two-way radio channels, or perhaps transmit audio to baby monitors or on unused fm radio frequencies.
Oh, and in case you're wondering I don't really have a particular reason for wanting to do this. I just think it would be a really fun project.
