To go along with our Amateur Radio Field Day celebration, we wanted to offer those that only want to listen in a chance to get in on the fun! This giveaway is catered to a bit if a “niche” market but it perfect for those that want to explore the air waves without a bunch of fancy or expensive equipment. WE are providing a USB SDR kit for one lucky reader! If you have no idea what I’m talking about, you may want to checkout our previous article on Software Defined Radios, and how you can use an inexpensive USB TV tuner to listen to all sorts of frequencies and pretty much turn your computer into a radio scanner!
Included in this prize pack is a USB SDR capable dongle, as well as an MX to F connector cable. Don’t worry it sounds confusing, but you’ll be able to connect this awesome little radio to your computer and a regular TV antenna. We figured most users would find this to be a great solution to listen in! You’ll be able to receive tons of local communications depending on your area. All you need to do is provide the SDR software!
There are multiple software packages available and they are mostly free. You can run this setup on just about anything including a Mac, PC, and even a RaspberryPi! We can point you in the direction of some software packages if necessary. Good luck and happy listening!
Don’t want to wait for the drawing? You can get you very own USB SDR hardware for only $15!
