R820T Archives Over on the SDRSharp Yahoo group, HB9AJG has posted an interesting report in a PDF file containing some measurements (Note you will need to be a member of the group to download the file titled “Some Measurements on E4000 and R820 Tuners.pdf”. Here is a Direct Mirror of the file.) quantifying the performance of both the E4000 and R820T RTL-SDR DVB-T dongles. See the discussion in the Yahoo group here. These results confirm the feeling that many RTL-SDR users have had: that the E4000 is more sensitive in the lower frequencies, and that the R820T is more sensitive in the higher frequencies, which is why it is recommended for ADS-B.

kochmorse - Koch Morse Tutor for Linux KochMorse is a easy to use morse tutor (trainer) for Linux using the Koch-mehtod. It provides a clean and modern graphical interface. The current release (version 0.99.x) is full featured and stable. I've tested it under Fedora and Ubuntu and it works well. If you have trouble to get it running or you like to see any features added, please contact me by mail: hmatuschek [at] gmail [dot] com .
Ham Radio Maps - CQ zone, ITU zone, Grid Locator, ARRL RAC Section, Overlay, Great Circle, Lighthouse, Callsign Prefix Whilst surfing around on the Internet, I soon noticed a lack of maps for hams, so decided to correct this by producing a set of my own that were easy to read, big enough to be useful, quick to download, and consistent in style and format. All these items are free for private use, but cannot be sold, traded, or used commercially. All graphics have hidden bit-pattern watermarking, for future identification in case of fraud.

operation with a Realtek RTL2832U USB dongle DVB-T receiver | GNSS-SDR - An Open Source Global Navigation Satellite System Software Defined Receiver Introduction This article describes what is probably one of the cheapest ways for experimenting with real-life signals and GNSS-SDR. This is product from a combined effort of many people, so let us only mention (to our knowledge) the very original source, the V4L/DVB kernel developer Antti Palosaari, who discovered an undocumented operation mode for some USB DVB-T dongles based on the Realtek RTL2832U chipset, enabling them to be used as a cheap Software Defined Radio (SDR) front-end. The key feature is that the chip allows transferring raw I/Q samples to the host, that in principle is the responsible for DAB/DVB+/FM demodulation. This is great news for a GNSS software receiver, since it covers the targeted frequency bands. The RTL2832U outputs 8-bit I/Q-samples with a baseband sample-rate up to 3.2 MSPS, according to the specifications.

Are you involved in advanced wideband GNSS signals research using Software Defined Receivers? Then you know how frustrating it can be to crunch hundreds of Gigabytes of data using MATLAB. Software Defined Radio (SDR) on the EzTV645 w/ RTL2382U and FC0013 | getglitched.com Due to much of my own issues with setting this USB dongle up, I thought it should take the time and write my own version of the installation. Take note that this installation is for Windows 7, and not linux (if that wasn’t already apparent). I will also list all of my references below, which may end up solving some problems people were having. First find a place to order the dongle at a reasonable price.
