Can you run two RTLSDR dongles on a single PC? I'm using them with HDSDR, and would like to connect two HF radios to the dongles for a pan adapter for each HF rig.

HDSDR only sees one dongle.

Thanks

You can, however different software applications may see things differently.
With HDSDR I'm not sure, I know that SDRConsole/CubicSDR and SDR# do a fine job at juggling multiple RTLs.

You might want to try changing the serial number of an RTL just be careful.
