  • A good choice for SDR use

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

    Pros:

    Can be used as a software defined radio.
    Receives low frequencies which E4000 tuner cannot.
    Decent reception with included antenna
    Compatible with GNU Radio, SDR#, HDSDR, and more.
    Antenna may be unscrewed from base, which lets you connect a different antenna.

    Cons:

    Non-standard antenna connector.
    Gets quite hot, though that hasn't caused any problems.
    Images of FM broadcast band appear at other frequencies.

    OtherThoughts:

    I got this purely for SDR use, because I live in a country without DVB-T and DAB broadcasting. I was impressed with how well it works. Even with the small included antenna, I could pick up CB radio at 27 MHz and ADSB at 1090 MHz.

    Bottomline:

    This is a good choice for software defined radio use.
