Can't beat it for the price,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: RTL-SDR, FM+DAB, DVB-T USB Stick Set with RTL2832U & R820T. Great SDR for SDR#, HDSDR (Electronics)
I bought this not for TV but for a homebrew ASDB tracking system with a homebrew antenna. It worked out of the box, and it was OK, but the range was a bit low. Turns out it was a loose antenna connection and once I replaced the F-Connector I was amazed at how sensitive this little guy is. Even with 30' of RG-6 we were tracking aircraft out to over 200km.
I then said "I should get rid of that 6db of loss from the RG-6" and so I bought a 10m USB extender cable and moved the receiver up to the antenna itself. Now we are tracking aircraft to over 350km! Amazing!
My next project is a maritime tracker for AIS - I can't wait!
