Project Using RTL-SDR to Tune Ham Radio

Hello,

I just wanted to post this here in case it might be useful. I tuned my Yaseu ham radio using an RTL-SDR dongle. Tuning equipment would be very expensive to the regular amateur. You can find the video below.

Have fun!

Hi John,

Very good video! I have a crystal controlled Motorola Mitrek and was wondering whether or not you need to leave the dongle attached after tuning the rig? As I’ve never done this before. Or would I need to obtain a new crystal for this radio since I moved from Calgary, AB to Halifax, NS and the local operating frequency for packet here is different. I’m in the process of setting up my shack here.
