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

    Pros:

    This is a really cheap entry level tuner that can be used for software defined radio its easily modifyed doesn't get to hot and works well with SDRsharp

    Cons:

    The antenna it comes with is pretty garbage trying to pick up some local fm stations was just impossible

    OtherThoughts:

    the antenna that it comes with is no good replace it before ordering with a mcx-coax pigtail or just hack on a new connector like i did

    Bottomline:

    You have 2 options you can get the MCX to coax adapter here for a few bucks or you can do what i did which is to desolder the mcx connector on the board and i simply solders a male to male coax connector to the board from the bottom of the board and then i used some cheap like 10 dollar bunny ears from radio shack and it works AWESOME now
