GNU Radio[1] boards - I guess you mean the USRP[2]?
Based on the hardware requirements[3], none of the current Neos have

See also the politics[4] section - IMHO, SDR[5] is going to get
outlawed as soon as someone tries to use it to circumvent established
networks (like the GSM network). Governments reacts slowly to change.
