"The RSP is the winner in terms being the cheapest all-in-one RX unit that is much better than an RTL-SDR. The RSP can tune to HF frequencies out of the box without an add on, has a higher top frequency of 2 GHz & doesn’t need a high end PC"

Why not take a test drive using SDR-Console? We have set up an RSP with an HF wire antenna in the UK which can be remotely accessed using SDR-Console. Follow the instructions on - the username is sdrplay and Password rsp.  Click here for a video guide. If our RSP is busy then look for others called SDRplay - there are quite a few on there with a range of antennas ranging from Long wires to Discones.

If you have a particular question and you are OK with using facebook (apologies to those of you who hate it!), then a very active SDRplay user group is on - simply post your question and you will undoubtedly get unbiased answers from a variety of folks
