Say hello to the newest member of NooElec's popular NESDR SDR-range, the NESDR Mini 2. The Mini 2 uses a brand-new tuner IC, the R820T2 made by Rafael Micro, to provide increased sensitivity and improved SNR. A greatly-improved telescopic metal antenna is also included with your SDR set at no extra charge. If you liked the NESDR Mini, you will love the NESDR Mini 2!
The perfect device for learning software defined radio, on the cheap. Amateur radio, ADS-B, police & fire scanning, trunking, satellite images--you name it, this little guy can probably do it. Outperforms many devices 10x its cost!
This custom NooElec SDR is a modified DVB-T USB dongle tuned for SDR usage, including upgraded crystal, capacitors and inductors compared to generic devices. Full compatibility with a large array of software packages, such as MATLAB®, HDSDR, SDR Touch, SDR#, Planeplotter--too many to list.
MathWorks® and NooElec™ have coordinated to bring MATLAB® support for our SDR receivers. The RTL-SDR radio support package enables you to design wireless receivers using real world signals. Using Communications System Toolbox™ in conjunction with an RTL-SDR USB radio, you can design and prototype systems that process real-time wireless signals in MATLAB® and Simulink®
Wireless engineers, students, and hobbyists can learn to receive and decode real-world radio signals using this low cost RTL-SDR hardware connected to your computer.
These units are based on the R820 (R820T2) tuner IC made by Rafael Micro. As such, they have a frequency capability of approximately 25MHz-1750MHz, though this can vary somewhat from unit to unit. There is also an RTL2832 (RTL2832U) IC on board of course, which acts as the demodulator and USB interface.
Interested in frequencies below 25MHz? We recommend you take a look at our Ham It Up upconverter, which will let you listen all the way down to 100kHz or lower with impeccable sensitivity.
The connector type on the antenna and USB board is MCX--male MCX on the antenna, female MCX on the SDR. There are plenty of adapter and adapter cables available in our store if you want to connect your favorite antenna!

- Very Much FunReview by Dave N7ADC

Must be very careful on gain setting to not overload,because the AGC is not very capable.
NooElec could make this much more friendly by having Jeff Knapp write his style of Guide for the SDR Sharp with a concentration on what the T2 mini will do. (Posted on 5/5/2015)
