New HF Dongle

I came across this and if it,s true about the receiver Sensitivity: being at 0.05 uV at 20M band, preamp = 0 than I think it may be as good Windradio . It has my interest and I am looking foreword to getting one when they hit the market . https://sunsdr.eu/product/colibrinano/?utm_content=buffer3eea...

Re: First timers Antenna and Overall setup suggestion RTL SD

For frequencies above 50MHZ a disc cone antenna it a good choice . Just be careful about the connector that comes with the antenna . You don't want a disc cone that has a PL-259 connector on it . That connector frequency only go's to the high 300MHZ . A disc cone antenna that has a female N connecto...

Re: Direct sampling hardware mode

Hi ClipArt .
If I may add my two cents to this . The 1:16 RF transformer that he is talking about comes from Mini-Circuits it's a ADT16-6T the other 1:16 RF transformer you can use is from Coilcraft and it's number is C 16-A . If you have any questions just do another post .

Re: The V3 Dongle

I would like to add more information that I hope people would find helpful . After playing around with the V3 dongle for a couple weeks I would like to say that the V3 and the MFJ1020c is a very good match . The reason why I say that is that MFJ1020c is only pre-selector that can attenuate a strong ...
