[Linrad] Sampling and FFT SDR-IQ

Hi Leif,

I am still working with linrad and the SDR-IQ and trying to understand
things.  Is this is off topic?

How do I get from (21000-4000)/1100 = 15.4545 to a sampling rate of 2048
or greater.  Is this because in the SDR produces I and Q and I need 2
bins per pixel?
