I'm still a newbie to SDR but figured I'd post these two setups for anyone looking to get into SDR and not sure what exactly they need. I know I was confused as to what parts to buy for the proper setup so figured this might help someone buy the proper parts to start their adventure into SDR. I have both of these setups and they work GREAT!!!


If your trying to listen to local frequencies that are not too far away, for example local PD or PD/FD in a neighboring city you can get away with this setup...

$65 for everything. Works GREAT!

I'm using the above setup to host this live feed: http://www.broadcastify.com/listen/feed/18260/web The city is located about 10-15 miles away from me.





For the ultimate setup around $100 and the ability to pickup frequencies FAR away go with this setup...
