FM Radio reception

Post by cartoon691 » Sun Feb 10, 2019 10:35 pm

I just stumbled on to a youtube video. Samsung 9+ come with a USB c connector. I installed a RTL-SDR driver and SDRTouch. I was able walk around the house and find out FM reception was very poor. Only places I go some reception was the kitchen and front door. Glad that the dongle works. Even had amazon replace the dongle. Hope that helps other people who are having issues with RTL-SDR problems.

Did you turn up the gain? Also, reception will be highly dependent on your antenna and if you can get it outside and up high.
