    Involvement:Novice  (still getting used to it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Cons:
    - not very sensitive ( but still usable) antenna.

    Very good for boats and SDR

    posted by PedroAbreu100 on 02/17/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Very good for boats because replaces the tv, radio and it is one additional receiving station, all in a small laptop. In tv receives DVB-T H264 Mpeg4 signals. Can be used with SDRSHARP software, and works very well.
    Cons:
    Just for indoor use.

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

    Pros:
    The chipset inside is very powerfull for SDR. I installed HDSDR following a tutorial that I found in google and I successfully listened to comunications in various bandwiths. The antenna connector is standard so you can easily buy the connectors to make you...
    Cons:
    The software for SDR is not user friendly. You need to learn how to properly change the configurations in order to hear something.

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

    Pros:

    Cons:
    The included antenna is very poor, but easy to replace with something better. You will likely want to change it out depending ...
