Hi All.

This week I received the Micro USB Host OTG Cable with Micro USB Power that I bought off of Amazon.ca from AtomicMarket. I bought it to connect my SDRplay RSP1 to my Samsung Galaxy Tab 4, 10.1 inch tablet. But I see that the end of the OTG accessory that would connect to the SDRplay is the same type of printer type connector that is on the SDRplay (Female i believe). Does this multi connector item that Im pasting in here have something I need to connect SDRplay to my tablet?

LP AK-30-TGN Adapters RF

Thanks Sheldon.

The adapter kit has nothing to do with USB.. They are all RF adapters.

Pick up a standard male USB to male USB-B male printer cable http://www.primecables.com/p-314234-cab-8614-all-usb-20-a-male-to-b-male-2824awg-cable-gold-plated-white-5-lengths-available-monoprice

and then use an OTG adapter to match the standard end to your tablet https://www.startech.com/ca/Cables/USB-2.0/USB-Adapters/Micro-USB-OTG-On-the-Go-to-USB-Adapter-Male-to-Female~UUSBOTGADAP

Any computer shop should have both items...

You need to connect the USB-B (printer style) on your SDRPlay to the USB mini on your tablet.

I don't think they make a male USB-B to male USB mini.. (But who knows if you search hard enough :) )

USB-B (printer) to USB-A (regular flat connector) cables are a dime a dozen. They're usually 2 meters (6 feet). but you may be able to get a 3 foot cable. I don't know if they come smaller than that. Someone else here might know.

Plug the USB-B into your SDR and then use your OTG adapter to mate the regular plug on the other end to the mini on your tablet.
