Software Defined Radio Receiver – RTL2832 with R820T


SKU: WRLS-017 - Mfg Part Number: 1497


Have you ever wondered what radio signals are wandering through the air around you? This software defined radio (SDR) is equipped with an RTL2832U and R820T tuner and is capable of listening in on signals between 24MHz and 1850MHz.

The SDR plugs in via USB and is compatible with Windows, Mac, or Linux. We have tested it on a Windows PC with SDRSharp / Zadig and had no problem tuning into a variety of radio sources.

Each SDR kit includes a very compact (but great quality) RTL2803+R820T module with an MCX RF connector and a basic ‘DVB-T’ antenna. The kit also includes an IR remote (which isn’t terribly useful, but could always find its way into another project!). We also carry an MCX to SMA Adapter Cable for attaching custom antennas.

Please Note: Depending on where you are located, listening in to some radio frequencies may be illegal.
