This product worked as advertised. I used SDR# as the software and followed the article written by W9RAN as published in the January 2013 issue of QST. I plan to build the up converter as described in the article. The small antenna in the starter bundle worked well enough to received several FM stations and ham radio repeaters. Some of the adapters were not helpful

This item is part of a package. I saw another source for this package that included a Quick setup and/or reference guide. This package came with zero documentation. So far, I have been unable to set it up.

I bought this as an entry level SDR. It has the RTL2832U demodulator and E4000 tuner, which are commonly supported in open source software. I have used it with both HDSDR running on Windows 7 and GNU Radio running on Ubuntu. It comes with adapters so most antennas can be used with it out of the box. The USB cable is good quality and long (I didn't measure but it's around 8-10 feet). The antenna is fairly useless but you can use it to get FM radio for an easy first application.

Thanks to the very involved staff at nooelec and the software they sent me, they were able to help me get my little device up and running. Now that its working, I am able to listen to local radio stations on my computer. I am looking into their rf converter so I can pick up hf too.
Works great.

The bottom end of this is in the 57MHz range. Don't expect to pick up long-wave or AM broadcasts.

Picking some lower-end areas will either show up silent, with strange device noises, or maybe fail to open the device with libusb0.

This also has a gap in the 1ghz range that varies from device to devices. I can pick up ADS-B, but I get more noise, fewer clean packets. Some people can't get ADS-B.

I also have a few random noise blocks that shift around with the window, or repeat in random places (ie, 127MHz is blotted out 200kHz wide).

Also, trying kalibrate, this varies by as much as 36khz from reliable sources. That's mostly thermal issues on the low quality oscillator. Don't expect to sync GPS with this with RTL-GNSS unless the project gets better at finding reference signals for drift compensation.

That being said, this is generally a decent device. Sensitivity is decent, and there are many adapters for PAL connectors that allow you to hook up better antennae.

The alternative is an R820T device, which I find to have better low-end range, better sensitivity, and infinitely better reception of aviation/radar signals such as ADS-B.

I recommend picking up SDRsharp, because it just works. Run the "zadig" tool to associate your RTL device with WinUSB. Start SDRsharp and go into "Configure". Turn off RTL-AGC and turn on Tuner-AGC. Set to an FM station, and use "WFM". Hit "play" and tinker with things until you're happy. I found a shift of 3000 was close for mine, and I did some tweaking of the FFT display to make signals more visible. Click and drag sideways to tune/scroll. Click once to set the center freq within the current display (max about 2.5MHz), or click top/bottom of the numbers in the freq. Alternatively, mouse wheel works great for tuning.
