hello, i am new to radio stuff and just bought the dsr stick. i wonder if i bought the right one for getting what i want.
perhaps i could show you the stick: nooelec smart prime etc.

however, i am sure i should receive more than just local WFM. perhaps it is the wrong stick.
good thing is the local WFM proved that the stick is working, right?

Strange, they don't specify the frequency coverage in the specifications. Here's a description containing the frequency range:

"SDR frequency capability approximately 25MHz-1700MHz. Frequency range can be extended down to 100kHz or lower with the Ham It Up,..."

Yes that stick is basically a standard RTL-SDR design, but with TCXO and metal case. It won't do frequencies below 25 MHz, but you can buy an upconverter for those frequencies if required.

Reception is mostly dependent on your antenna. You didn't say what signals you're interested in?
