A micro version of the classic RTL SDR Dongle - Perfect for your Raspberry Pi SDR server or when you've got a populated "back of PC".  Covering from 25MHz to around 1800MHz, it allows reception of AM, CW, FM, SSB for Amateur Radio as well as airband, broadcast radio and other frequencies (incl plane-radar/tracking). Subject to computer power, your waterfall can span over 2.5MHz. A small magmount aerial is provided but you are advised to use an aerial tuned for the operating frequency - for that, we include the option of a BNC or SO239 adapter as part of the package.

  • Mini RTL USB Dongle with RTL2832U
  • See over 2.5MHz of spectrum!
  • VHF/UHF Mini Magmount Aerial - perfect for airband, local 2m repeater, airplane tracking, satellite reception etc
  • Includes BNC>MCX or SO239>MCX adapter for connecting an external aerial
  • Includes printed installation instructions
  • If you wish to use it for DAB/Freeview - you can add a standard TV aerial adapter. The original driver CD can be downloaded here [100MB]

Compatible with software such as HD-SDR and SDR# (now Airspy SDR#) - using the direct sampling driver DLL, you can also tune below 25MHz with SDR#. Read this article for a comparison between this and the original R820T dongle.  These also work on the Raspberry Pi - check out this page for details of rolling your own Pi-based SDR receiver!  If you're looking at tracking planes, Dave M0TAZ has written a useful blog post on ADS-B reception here.
