This is an ultra-high-accuracy RTL-SDR with an R820T tuner IC, pre-installed into a high quality black aluminum enclosure to reduce stray EMI and protect your investment!

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.

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!

These units are based on the R820 (R820T) 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.

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!

Want HF too? You can modify the dongle for HF reception, it's far from an ideal way of receiving HF.  If you would like to do this please contact us and we'll be happy to walk you through it. However, we would instead 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

NESDR Mini+0.5PPM TCXOReview by John
Currently using my NESDR Mini+ for Amateur Radio reception. I also have a NESDR Mini2, although the Mini2 does a fine job on the HF bands, the Mini+0.5PPM TCXO has proved to be very much worth the little extra investment . My laptop, Ham it Up upconverter,and the Mini+, makes for a great portable HF receiver when traveling.
