How does DSP work?
One good place to start is The ARRL Handbook. It has an entire chapter
on DSP written by Jon Bloom, KE3Z. The chapter explains DSP Fundamentals
to DSP Hardware and Development Tools. It is a good place to start and
get an overview on the extensive topic of DSP. Hopefully, after reading
the chapter you will have a good idea of what DSP is and how it works.
A second place to start is text books. Texts are excellent sources of information on DSP. They range from introductory to advanced levels. Texts can explain various topics of DSP chapter by chapter giving you step by step instruction on DSP. Here is a biblography of DSP texts.
Finally, there are several articles written about DSP in QST, QEX, Ham Radio, and Communications Quarterly.
