I never thought about doing much more than tuning to FM radios with my
rtl-sdr, but that's a pretty cool project!
I think that depends what's your goal, if you want to decode qpsk frame
from classic radios  I think rtl-sdr can do it.
If you want to Tx/Rx data accurately, I think you need a digital modulation
(my understanding is that it works best at the hardware level if you want a
Something like this  could help, if you know someone who can program
fpga cards ..
But it's a pretty cool project, maybe you can use an OFDM stream instead
That's the hd tv data stream the chip RTL2832U  in the rtl-sdr is meant
to demodulate in hardware.
.. I even found an opencore for ofdm modulation , which could (in
theory) be loaded on an fpga ..
