SASQUATCH - DSP back-end

The Sasquatch board is a proposed DSP back-end intended for use by constructors who would like to operate the HPSDR stand-alone rather than attached to a PC.

Sasquatch could have the logic needed to implement a highly efficient VHF transmitter using envelope elimination and restoration techniques.
