Product description

Quickstart Guide: rtl-sdr.com/QSG
V3 Features Guide: rtl-sdr.com/V3
Antenna Guide: rtl-sdr.com/DIPOLE

This is an RTL-SDR software defined radio receiver with RTL2832U ADC chip, R820T2 tuner, 1PPM TCXO, SMA F connector and aluminium case with passive cooling. Tunes from 500 kHz to 1.8 GHz with up to 3.2 MHz (2.4 MHz stable) of instantaneous bandwidth. (HF works in direct sampling mode). Perfect for use as a computer based radio scanner with free software like SDR#, HDSDR, SDR-Radio, GQRX or SDR Touch on Android. Works on Windows, MacOS, Linux, Android and single board computers like the Raspberry Pi.

Great for many applications including general radio scanning, air traffic control, public safety, ADS-B aircraft radar, marine AIS, ACARS, trunked radio, P25/MotoTRBO digital voice, POCSAG, weather balloons, APRS, NOAA APT/Meteor M2 weather satellites, radio astronomy, DAB, or as a low cost panadapter with a standard ham radio.

As of Sept 28 now comes with a dipole antenna kit which is perfect for beginners. The short antennas are great for ADS-B, and the longer antennas work well at lower frequencies. When used in a v-dipole configuration the antenna works well for 137 MHz weather satellites and the ISS. Use in a vertical configuration for terrestrial signals. The two mounts and 3m of RG174 cable allow you to easily mount the antenna outdoors.

This model has several improvements over other models. It uses the improved R820T2 tuner, a 1PPM TCXO, has better components, a redesigned PCB, cooling improvements, extra ESD protection and an SMA F connector. It also has a software activatable bias-tee for powering devices such as LNA's and active antennas. Full info available on the improvements available here goo.gl/JTNPrb

Requires USB 2.0 or newer. Quickstart Guide: rtl-sdr.com/QSG, V3 features guide: rtl-sdr/v3, dipole antenna guide: rtl-sdr.com/dipole. Please feel free to contact us for support.
