Too bad it is on that crappy abomination of a site which I will never use or associate with in any way ever. Nice giveaway though. Hopefully it brings some sales your way.


I have been using the SDRPlay RSP1 for a while now and in my opinion it is the best SDR currently available, therefore I am definitely interested in obtaining an SDRPlay RSP2.
