Realtek RTL2832U SDR Dongle
sEssex Ham first put me onto this with “The Realtek RTL2832U dongle is probably the most useful thing that a ham can spend £10 on.” A great article explaining everything you need to get this device working as an SDR…
Also, there is an SDR app and driver for the RTL2832U on the Fire OS (Amazon fire tablet) great if you want a powerful portable scanner, not so simple for the Apple iPhone or pad!
SDR# is the most commonly used SDR program on Windows and its as one of the easiest to set up and use with the RTL2832U with the driver installed first.
