RTL-SDR Blog R820T2 RTL2832U 1PPM TCXO SMA Software Defined Radio with 2x Telescopic Antennas
- Product Code: RTL-SDR Blog SDR-V3
- Availability: In Stock
This is an RTL-SDR software defined radio receiver with RTL2832U ADC chip, R820T2 tuner, 1PPM TCXO, SMA F connector and aluminium case with passive cooling. Tunes from 500 kHz to 1.7 GHz with up to 3.2 MHz of instantaneous bandwidth. (HF works in direct sampling mode - V.3 models and above only). Perfect for use as a computer based radio scanner with free software like SDR#, HDSDR, SDR-Radio, Linrad, GQRX or SDR Touch on Android. Works on Windows, MacOS, Linux, Android and even embedded Linux computers like the Raspberry Pi.
Great for many applications including general radio scanning, monitoring air traffic control, public safety, ADS-B aircraft radar, marine AIS, ACARS, trunked radio, P25/MotoTRBO digital voice, POCSAG, weather balloons, APRS, NOAA APT and Meteor M2 weather satellites, radio astronomy, DAB, or for use as a low cost panadapter with a standard ham radio.
Includes two telescopic antennas with magnetic mount. The short antenna is perfect for ADS-B when collapsed and works up to around 230 MHz when extended. The larger antenna is perfect for frequencies between 230 MHz down to 50 MHz. You can improve reception and stability of the large antenna by placing the magnetic base on any metal plate such as a cookie tin lid. For custom antennas note that this dongle has an SMA F connector (not RP-SMA).
This model has several improvements over other models. It uses the improved R820T2 tuner, has a 1PPM TCXO (2 PPM initial offset, 1 PPM temperature drift), has improved component tolerances and an SMA F connector. It also comes with a software activatable bias-tee circuit for powering external devices such as LNA's and active antennas.
Requires USB 2.0 (works on most USB 3.0 ports, but we cannot guarantee it to work on all so please ensure your PC has a USB 2.0 port just in case). Installation on Windows is simple, please Google for the free RTL-SDR Quickstart Guide for installation instructions.
