Software Defined Ham Radio Links:
A site for general info is naturally the Wiki site located here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software-defined_radio

For more on interconnection to the internet by these radios you might try this link on WebSDR: http://websdr.org/

One other sort of generic link on the subject is here: http://sdr-radio.com/

Now then, for specific items, these are links for products that are either kits or ready to go systems. The most popular and best selling transceiver systems are Flex: http://www.flex-radio.com/

These folks are newer on the scene and I don't know much about them but the idea is a good one. Kits of mostly board sets that can give you a lot of variety in the system you would build yourself: http://www.nuand.com/blog/shop/

And then there is the FunCube. A very popular system for experimenters for several years now. http://www.funcubedongle.com/

The last item would be this item from NooElec. They realized that there was no HF capability for the inexpensive DVB-T USB devices so they made an up-converter for them. This allows you to use any of the kit or cheaper DVB-T sticks from eBay as the start point and with the up-converter you can listen to HF.

Other suggestions:
- Check the equipment manufacturer's web page if looking for technical specs, manuals, etc.
- When all else fails, use a search engine such as Google to search for information
