    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Good for SDR-technology. It was the main reason I've bought it. And I wasn't dissapointed. I'd recomment to use TSSDR software. With this programm it's easy to catch any station (screen shows 2 Mhz and find out what was said seconds ago. Sensitivity is OK, the same as my Wouxun radio. As for DVB - we have no stations this format now, so no comments.
    Frequency from 24.6 MHz and higher, TV channels sound, airplanes, city services, FM radios, satellites... everything you can get.

    Cons:

    Need RF-shielding to decrease local noises from computer - but it's not so nessesary. It's better to use long USB cable.

    OtherThoughts:

    To receive everything use real outdoor antenna, not the included short model :^)
    And don't forget to increase gain. The smaller antenna - the greater should be a gain.

    Bottomline:

    Recommend it. R820 works fine for SDR.
