This is a bit offtopic and I see no relation to software radio and refurbishment.....
There's at least one AU phone I have that has a BREW radio built in. The only
downside is that you need to plugin your headphones for it to work. But you can
use it even after the phone is canceled so I'm not sure how relevant it is. Its the W31KII
and its a Kyocera and not a Kenwood.
In BREW you can detect if the antenna is attached or not... it probably uses that method.
Lastly the quality is as good or better than a regular radio... so this can't be what you
are talking about. There's no need to hack anything here...... Not sure how this relates.....
So without any hacks... With BREW you can write a software radio to run on any BREW phone....
Its probably not too hard either but I'm too busy to come up with the exact how. There's probably
someway to get input from the antenna... then its just about processing and amplifying that information
with the right transforms and wallah a radio.
