What can I do with this router?

Basically this device is meant to be a little 3g travel router. You can plug in a 3g USB adapter and share that Internet connection to multiple devices over WIFI. It also supports Ethernet. It runs a linux operating system so this opens up lost of Amateur Radio opportunities. So for $24 you can get a 400mhz linux computer, with Ethernet, Wifi and USB ports and several GPIO.

1) SDR
Using a RTL-SDR dongle on TL-WR703n you can listing to Amateur radio frequencies.
If you’re running OpenWrt Barrier Breaker (i.e. trunk) you can install librtlsdr
Here is pre compiled applications

This unit can be used to do APRS with external GPS unit.
