Hi Valian,

easy answers first: I use Fedora, many others use Ubuntu, some use
Gentoo, I'm certain a couple people use Arch, too. That's not a problem
- Arch is nice in that it's always pretty recent and is very nice to
people doing source builds. So, if you feel comfortable building GNU
Radio from source on Arch, go for it!

Things to look into: Well, you'll need to know GNU Radio. So, if you
haven't, start with the "GNU Radio Guided Tutorials", build your first
GRC flow graph, then a python thing, then a C++ thing;

Best Regards,
