Re: Help with Unitrunker

Seems that nothing much has changed from the last version to the new version of Unitrunker, if it worked with the old version it should work with the new version. There is no need for another other drivers or plugins to get unitrunker to work. You might try experimenting with the gain and PPM offset...

Re: Only noise - Dexatek DK DVB-T Dongle (Rtl2832)

It looks like you have a relatively uncommon FCI 2580 tuner RTL-SDR dongle. The FCI 2580 doesn't appear to be very good with its frequency range stated as 146 - 308 MHz and 438 - 924 MHz (gap in between) on the official Osmocom site http://sdr.osmocom.org/trac/wiki/rtl-sdr So the 98.1M you are tryin...

Re: Sound Card

You might have been reading about older SDRs which required a sound card as a data input. The newer ones like the RTL-SDR don't need a dedicated soundcard.

Re: watching DVB-T TV on OS X on Terratec Tstick+

If you want to watch DVB-T TV, then GQRX and SDR is not what you want. There is a difference between the DVB-T TV watching drivers and SDR drivers. SDR drivers enable the stick as a general purpose radio, but don't allow for DVB-T TV watching. This site and forum is mainly about the SDR drivers. I'm...

Re: Antenna for GSM reception

The stock antenna shouldn't be too bad for GSM, assuming you have good reception in your area and/or can get it high and outside.

There are many GSM antennas that you can find just by googling for "GSM antenna". A simple GSM band tuned whip should in most cases suffice.

Re: rtl-sdr as digital Tv reciever... hmmm

You can download the official manufacturer RTL2832U drivers here http://bit.ly/1igDacW. You'll need to uninstall the SDR drivers first before installing these though as you can only have one driver installed at a time. Then i'd suggest using free software like ProgDVB to receive TV.

Re: Sensitivity and S/N ratio comparison..

I don't think anyones made definitive measurements compared against ordinary receivers but the best analysis of the noise figure and other RTL-SDR measurements are in this post http://www.rtl-sdr.com/measurements-on-rtl-sdr-e4000-and-r820t-dvb-t-dongles-image-rejection-internal-signals-sensitivity-o...
