Re: Dongle RTL-SDR very hot

Excuse me. My device is a Nooelec NESDR SmarTee and I connect to use SDR # or SDR Console. The heating problem only happens when I use the above mentioned antennas. I do not use any other device connected to Nooelec. Should I change some settings in SDR # or SDR Console?

Dongle RTL-SDR very hot

I have read some comments about overheating on the SDR dongle. In my case, I notice this when I use closed-frame antennas such as cubical quad, QFH and the like. In Yagi antennas - open frame - this does not happen. The SDR sees this as a possible short circuit. Any ideas on how to solve? Any filters?
