But you know what is in my budget? The NooElec NESDR! In just a week of playing with the item, SDR Console w/DSD+, and the antennas it comes with, I was able to easily hook it up to an Asus T100 tablet to monitor my local police and fire! The 6 VFOs in the free software means I can listen to 6 frequencies at once, all with this little sdr, and that's simply something I could never do with my expensive 400 and 500 dollar scanners.
Yes it does get a bit warm, but the frequency never drifts, the sound is good, reception is great in my area, and it does everything I ask of it, even with my small tablet. I'm really loving this thing a lot and will probably buy at least 2 more to play around with.
NooElec NESDR SMArt - Premium RTL-SDR w/ Aluminum Enclosure, 0.5PPM TCXO, SMA Input. RTL2832U & R820T2-Based Software Defined Radio
New design is very nice. The narrower body makes it much easier to use these in cramped quarters. Having two or more side-by-side where USB port spacing is tight shouldn't be an issue, although stacking them top-to-bottom could be an issue if the ports are close together.
Aluminum case feels solid, fit and finish is excellent, no issues with either the USB or SMA connector. TCXO has a very tight tolerance; mine only needs 0.25ppm correction.
Performance wise, these compare favorably to the popular RTL-SDR.com dongles. I see no discernible difference in the noise floor or any other performance category to distinguish one from another, aside from the slightly better TCXO that NooElec uses in these dongles. Both perform equally well, and are the only 'budget' RTL dongles that you should be spending any money on these days.
I already own a few of the RTL-SDR.com dongles, and was previously not all that impressed with NooElec's offerings. I found them to be overpriced at the time for features that RTL-SDR.com was including at less than half the price. Now that they've gotten their prices in line with RTL-SDR.com, and have come out with this new design with a better TCXO, they've won me over. I plan on picking up a few more of these.

The screening and better components (low drift, etc.) is also good for a beginner that may not be aware of the various pitfalls that cheaper devices may affected by. The various antennas are also very useful for the price, you now get 3 + holder/cable for a pretty low price - all delivered through AZ!
I would suggest a good quality screened USB extension cable as well, perhaps AZ's own Basics of 1-3m or so (longer should probably be Active) just to avoid the PC/laptop's own RF interference. If you can/have some ferrite rings for it and perhaps PSU cable/charger may also be a good idea.
While NooElec does email instructions after purchase (and sending invoice) it would be good to include a small piece of paper with some basic instructions. One guide that I think would be useful is the frequency range each antenna (as now you get 3) should be used for?
Fortunately, I stumbled across an article which said that these units should be placed away from the PC and not plugged in directly. So I used my 2m USB extension cable and the reception improved massively. Encouraged by this, I've since been able to track aeroplanes via Dump1090 and detect local GSM masts.
Minus one star for a lack of documentation. I'm not really clear which antenna to use for which purpose. So far I've only used the telescopic antenna. The other antennas are for 433Mhz and UHF but I'm unsure which is which at the moment. This is something I need to experiment with further.
My ultimate aim is to start receiving satellite signals such as weather data but I'll need a different antenna for this purpose.
Bought one of these in December 2016 mainly to use as a Spectrum Analyser and band monitor to check for illegal radio users interfering with my licensed DRM repeater. Very impressed with its performance. A little tricky to get working under Windows 10 x64 and to persuade SDR# to recognise it but once working it is great. I have a proper wideband scanning aerial on my radio tower which helps but when I tried this with the supplied magmount and telescopic aerial on a biscuit tin at my house I was very surprised how sensitive it was. Actually not selective at all and suffers overload from strong nearby transmissions. This is where one needs to be an experimenter - I found the strong signal and made a simple notch filter to compensate.
Unfortunately the SDR met an untimely end, it fell out of my rucksack, unbeknown to me and was accidentally run over by a 6.5 ton armoured vehicle the USB plug is bent but probably it could be repaired. Easiest to just buy another SDR, which I did...... now waiting for delivery.
When you order these SDR, the seller emails you via Amazon with the links for the software and this works "out of the box" although not as good as SDR# and the multitude of plugins it easliy shows the capability of the device.
Connected the small antenna. Plugged it into my Raspberry Pi 3 running the FR24 software and it worked immediately. No need to install any drivers, or configure any settings. It just works.
It does run hot, but not worryingly so.
It will definitely benefit from a better 1090Mhz antenna, but the one provided affords a range of around 75 miles, which is fine for initial installation/testing.
For £30 it's a great purchase !
