Why do I need an SDR?

Post by sacentre » Sun Mar 14, 2021 9:07 am

Ok, I hope this isn't some sort of heresy, but if I can access SpyServer networks and web based SDR so easily, do I really need an SDR dongle? A question for me to answer at the end of the day, of course but I'm just wondering what other folks think.

If you are happy using on-line resources then you do not need one.

Depends on if you want to receive local stuff on your own antenna, and not depend on the internet working or someone else's server to be up and running and not busy.

just listen to yourself and your own needs. Other people don't know if you're needs something or not.
