Say hello to the newest member of NooElec's popular NESDR SDR-range, the NESDR Mini 2. The Mini 2 uses a brand-new tuner IC, the R820T2 made by Rafael Micro, to provide increased sensitivity and improved SNR. A greatly-improved telescopic metal antenna is also included with your SDR set at no extra charge. If you liked the NESDR Mini, you will love the NESDR Mini 2!
The perfect device for learning software defined radio, on the cheap. Amateur radio, ADS-B, police & fire scanning, trunking, satellite images--you name it, this little guy can probably do it. Outperforms many devices 10x its cost!
This custom NooElec SDR is a modified DVB-T USB dongle tuned for SDR usage, including upgraded crystal, capacitors and inductors compared to generic devices. Full compatibility with a large array of software packages, such as MATLAB®, HDSDR, SDR Touch, SDR#, Planeplotter--too many to list.
MathWorks® and NooElecTM have coordinated to bring MATLAB® support for our SDR receivers. The RTL-SDR radio support package enables you to design wireless receivers using real world signals. Using Communications System ToolboxTM in conjunction with an RTL-SDR USB radio, you can design and prototype systems that process real-time wireless signals in MATLAB® and Simulink®
These units are based on the R820T2 tuner IC made by Rafael Micro. As such, they have a frequency capability of approximately 25MHz-1750MHz. There is also an RTL2832U IC on board of course, which acts as the demodulator and USB interface.
Interested in frequencies below 25MHz? We recommend you take a look at our Ham It Up upconverter, which will let you listen all the way down to 100kHz or lower with impeccable sensitivity.
The connector type on the SDR in female MCX, and on the antenna, male MCX. There are plenty of adapter and adapter cables available in our store if you want to connect your favorite antenna!

I had to search the internet until I found www.RTL-SDR.com/rtl-sdr-quick-start-guide/
This answered all my questions and got me up and running.
The www.nooelec.com website has links to SDR# and HDSDR software for windows.
Both are fantastic programs for listening to various types of signals from 25Mhz up to 1750Mhz.
I've been listening to CB radio, FM broadcasts, Fire, Police, Airlines going overhead, and the 2 meter and 440Mhz Ham bands.
Interesting thing, when I listen to the Ham bands on a regular Shortwave, I hear the signal about 1 or 2 seconds before I hear it
on the RTL-SDR receiver. Must be some kind of lag as the computer processes everything.
If you have a Mac, the software works fine under Parallels, however there is a free Mac software for it called GQRX.
It works, but is very limited. My favorite is "SDR-Radio v2"
I asked Tech Support at NooElec about the Remote Control that comes in the package: It's not for any of the SDR apps, it's for DVB video, which is aTV format that's not transmitted here in the US. If you're in Europe, here's the link to the software: http://f.nooelec.com/TV28Tv2.iso
Here's some software tips, in case you get these errors:
Program name: SDR-Radio:
Error was: “Cannot gain exclusive access to the selected radio.”
Solution: Turned out that in Windows Task Manager, an occurrence of “SDR Console” was hiding out that didn’t close when the rest of the program closed.
Program name: HDSDR :
Error was: "A device ID has been used that is out of range for your system."
Solution: Turned out that the program had forgotten the sound card it was to use. (RX input from radio, and RX output to speaker.) Should have been Parallels microphone and Parallels speaker, but the program forgot.
Program name: SDRsharp:
Error was: "1 compatible devices has been found but are all busy."
Solution: Once I got those others going, this one was back to normal.
The included antenna is fine for testing, but for serious use, a better antenna is required. I'd recommend the MCX to BNC cable.
The female BNC can be mated to just about any rf connector type using common adaptors.
BTW: I'm using SDR# (SDR Sharp) software with the dongle.
As another reviewer noted, there's zero documentation (though you'll find some online), so you're pretty much on your own to figure things out if there's a problem. Otherwise, the unit itself is somewhat large and tends to block adjacent ports - I find it handy to use a short USB extension cable. Otherwise, no particular complaints - it just does what it says, and for a fairly uncommon device, it works quite well right out of the box. Definitely the right SDR, especially considering the price.
