    this is some sorta bad joke…
    he breaks the law he should pay the price…not ask for everyone else to bail him out
    hes asks for a new laptop…BUY IT YASELF LIKE THE REST OF US HAVE TO…i want a new one too but im not gonna ask the internet for donations….
    he wants money to travel the world…again why should ANYONE pay for him to travel the world?…ive hardly been out of the state let alone the country…again im not gonna ask for donations…
    if he was only asking for help to put a roof over his head (which he already has) or for his other situation maybe donations might be worthy…. but as it is, hes better off than a LOT of other people around the world…
    ALL this just shows how ENTITLED younge people think they are…

    I purchased the RTL-SDR Blog V3 from Amazon as noted above. Happened to have a Raspberry Pi Model B (one processor) sitting around doing nothing, so I installed Raspian Lite 32-bit (no GUI version — that’s important), downloaded and built the RTL-SDR drivers, installed Dump1090, popped it into one of the USB ports — my WiFi dongle’s in the other — and fired it up.

    Works perfectly. Started getting SDR data immediately, even with an untuned antenna and a mediocre location. CPU’s not over 35%, and that’s with wireless and an LCD display running. No real heat on the CPU either. So this may be a great use for those older RPi units hanging around 🙂
