    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    One of my goals was to get it working with SDR (Software Defined Radio) ... which went well: I have it working on Linux for FM radio using rtl_fm

    Technical details:

    Realtek, RTL2838UHIDIR
    Rafael Micro R820T tuner

    Cons:

    My other goal was to use it for DAB. However, under Windows, I couldn't find any DAB features. The accompanied CD only seems to give TV-software. No FM, no DAB.

    OtherThoughts:

    Command to listen to FM radio under Linux:

    sudo rtl_fm -f 96900000 -W -s 150000 -r 48000 - | aplay -r 48k -f S16_LE -t raw -c 1

    Bottomline:

    Great stick for SDR.
    Pity I can't find any DAB features.
