I am waiting for an "rtl sdr v3" dongle to arrive. Newbie to this aspect of the radio hobby. I also ordered an sma male to bnc male adapter so I can connect dongle to my discone antenna. The software I downloaded looks way too intimidating and confusing. I have Airspy sdr# and another program called "DSDplus" which is also extremely confusing. Is there an EASIER less complicated program to get started with? AlI care to monitor at this point is just digital/conventional scanner stuff. I have been looking online for help but most of the time what I find goes beyond my understanding and more than what I intend to do. My computer is a Dell Optiplex 390 with SSD and 16G RAM. I also installed "VB virtual audio cable" cause that was recommended. I could not find any step by step instructions how to get this all set up and working. All I know is to connect the dongle to the sma/bnc adapter, then connect to antenna. Does anyone have a checklist of steps to get this set up? I would guess that depends on what software is used. I dont understand why I need 2 programs. There are way too many options and things to check/uncheck and set. I simply want to just monitor scanner data/voice. Not interested in recording.
