  • Cheap SDR stick

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

    Pros:

    Comes with R820T tuner, good range as in datasheet. Sensitivity is comparable to E4000 tuner based on use, though I have no proper equipment to verify it.

    Cons:

    USB stick plastic cap is tight, have to file off a bit to allow the cap to slide in smoothly. The plastic case can be open too easily with finger nails. Don't drop it else the case will split open easily. Antenna is a short 4 inch whip which is probably good for strong 800Mhz use only. An external antenna is recommended.

    OtherThoughts:

    Value for money if you don't mind the quality of the case.

    Bottomline:

    Will recommend this product and will buy again for SDR use.
